Garier, Jean

Garier, Jean a French Reformed theologian, was born at Avignon in the beginning of the 16th century, and died at Cassel, in January, 1574. He succeeded Pierre Bruly, or Brulius (q.v.), as pastor of the French Church in Strasburg, which was founded by Calvin in 1538. He rejected with disdain the Interim (q.v.), which Charles V was about to introduce in Strasburg in 1549. He left the city, but returned in 1552, to leave it again in 1555. In 1559 he was appointed professor of theology at Marburg, and three years later courtpreacher at Cassel. He published Confession de la Foy Chretienne de Strasbourg (Strasburg, 1549,1552; transl. into English, Lond. 1562): — De Epistola Pauli ad Hebraeos Declamatio (Marburg, 1559). See Strieder, Hist.
