Garissoles Antoine

Garissoles Antoine, a French Protestant minister, was born at Montauban in 1587. He was ordained and appointed pastor at Puylaurens in 1610. In 1620 he was sent to Montauban, and in October, 1627, he was made professor of theology at that place. In 1645 he presided at the Synod of Charenton, and distinguished himself by his firmness in resisting demands made by the government which would have destroyed the Protestant liberties. He attacked at this synod the theory of mediate imputation as held by Placaeus (q.v.). When the Protestant schools were disorganized, owing to the irregularity with which they received their subsidies, he remained at his post, with no hope of remuneration, and by teaching all branches of theology supplied the places of his absent colleagues as well as his own. He died at Montauban July, 1651. Among his works are La voie du Salut, exposee en huit sermons (Montauban, 1637, 8vo): — Decreti synodici Carentoniensis de imputatione primi peccati Adae explicatio et defensio (Montauban, 1648, 8vo): — Theses theologicae de religione et cultu sive adoratione religiosa (Montauban, 1648, 4to): — Disputationes elenchticae de capitibus fidei inter reformatos et pontificios controversis in acad. Montalb., habitae sub praesidiis Ant Garissolii et Joan. Verderii (Montauban, 1650, 8vo): — Catecheseos ecclesiarum in Gallia et alibi reformatarum Explicatio, opus a Paulo Carolo inchoatum et ab. Ant. Garissolio continuatum et absolutum (Geneve, 1656, 4to). — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 19:491, 492.
