Martin (Paschoud), Joseph

Martin (Paschoud), Joseph a Protestant theologian, was born at Nimes, October 14, 1802. He studied at Geneva, was for some time pastor at Luneray, and in 1828 at Lyons, where he labored with his former classmate, Adolphe Monod. In 1837 he was called to Paris, but after two years of work was obliged to retire from the active ministry for a time on account of an incurable disease. In 1839 he commenced publishing a monthly journal, entitled Le Disciple de Jesus Christ. In 1853 he founded L'Alliance Chretienne Universelle, on the following basis: "Love of God, the Creator and Father of all men; love of all men, the immortal creatures and children of God; love of Jesus Christ, the son of God and Savior of mankind." Adolphe Monod was the first who wrote against the principles of this journal. In 1851 the consistory of Paris appointed the younger Athanase Coquerel as his assistant, and made him retire, under the pretext of heresy, in 1864. In spite of the protests of his medical advisers, Martin resumed his ministerial functions. In 1868 he succeeded Athanase Coquerel, the father, as president of the presbytery, and died May 24, 1873, at Loges, near Versailles. See Lichtenberger, Encyclop. des Sciences Religieuses, s.v.
