Perrot, Charles a Protestant minister, was born in 1541. He was the son of a counselor in the Parliament of Paris, but embraced the Reformed doctrines and retired to Geneva, where he was provided with a place as pastor in 1567. Besides, he ably fulfilled the duties of rector of the academy and professor of theology. What rendered him especially commendable was the courage with which he preached religious tolerance. He died in Geneva Oct. 15, 1608. He became suspected by the theologians of the Calvinistic school, who persuaded the council to forbid the printing of the works which he had composed, among others the treatises De la Foi and De extremis in Ecclesia Vitandis.
