Thomas J. Hopkins is Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Franklin & Marshall ­College, USA. He was also Director of Academic Affairs at the Oxford Centre for Vaisnava and Hindu Studies for the academic year 1998-9. He is the author of The Hindu Religious Tradition and has published numerous articles and encyclopaedia entries on aspects of Indian religious life ranging from the Indus Civilisation to modern Bengal Vaisnavism. His special interest in the Vaisnava devotional tradition led to his first meeting with A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in New York in 1966, which focused his attention on the newly emerging ISKCON movement and started a long-term study of ISKCON's history and theology.

Moreover, many reputable scholars, like Dr. A. L Basham and Dr. Thomas Hopkins, declare that Heliodorus was not the only Greek to convert.

...
Dr. Hopkins, Chairman of the Department of Religious Studies at Franklin and Marshall college, says, "Heliodorus was presumably not the only foreigner who was converted to Vaisnava devotional practices (although he might have been the only one to erect a column, at least one that is still extant). Certainly there must have been many other.
