Bridel, Louis

Bridel, Louis a French Protestant minister, was born in 1813 at Vevay. He studied at Lausanne, and .after having preached for some time in his native country, he went in 1840 to Paris, where, as one of the preachers at the chapel Taitbout, he soon became the centre of evangelistic work. In 1855 he returned to his native land, and devoted his entire energy to the benefit of his Church. In 1858 he founded the Chretien Evangelique, which he edited as long as he lived. The evangelization of Spain very much occupied his mind, and the carrying-out of his plans was interrupted by his death, November 1, 1866. His important work is Trois Seances sur Paul Rabaut et les Prot. Frang. au Dixhuitieme Siecle (1859). See Chretien Evangeique, 1866, pages 585-604; Lichtenberger, Encyclopadie des Sciences Religienses, s.v. (B.P.)
