Frossard, Benoit Daniel Emilien

Frossard, Benoit Daniel Emilien a French theologian, youngest son of Benjamin Sigismond (q.v.), was born June 26, 1802, at Paris. At the age of fifteen he was sent to England, where he came into direct relationship with some distinguished members of the Friends, who made a lasting impression upon him. Having returned to France, he studied theology at Montauban, and presented as his thesis for the degree of bachelor of divinity, Accord entre le Recit de Moese sur l'Age du Genre Humain et les Phenomenes Geologiques. In 1825 he was called to Nimes, and in 1847 was appointed director of the seminary which was to be established beside the theological university at Montauban. In 1848 he resigned his position, and made his home at Bagneres-de-Bigorre, at the foot of the Pyrenees, where he died, January 25, 1881. His great zeal for the Protestants scattered about the Pyrenees was so effective and so laborious that he was styled "the apostle of the Pvrenees." He wrote, L'Ami de la Famille: Les Archives Evangeliques: — La Vie Reelle: — Le Livre des Faibles: — Le Catechisme Biblique. See Lichtenberger, Encyclop. des Sciences Religieuses s.v.; Zuchold, Bibl. Theol. 1:391. (B.P.)
