Cellerier, Jean Isaac Samuel

Cellerier, Jean Isaac Samuel a French theologian, was born at Cransu, near Nyon, Switzerland, in 1753. He studied at Geneva, where he was ordained in 1776. Having spent a few years in traveling, he returned to his native country, and was called in 1783 as pastor to Satigny, where he labored for thirty-one years. In 1814 he resigned his pastorate on account of feeble health, and spent the remainder of his life at Geneva, where he died in 1844. He wrote more than four hundred and twenty sermons, of which one hundred and forty-one were published during his lifetime, and twenty-three after his death. The others are still in manuscript in the library belonging to the pastors association of Geneva. See Coulin, in Lichtenberger's Encyclop. des Sciences Religieuses, s.v.; Zuchold, Bibl.
