Rambour, Abraham

Rambour, Abraham a French Protestant theologian, was born at Sedan, the seat of French evangelical Christianity, about 1590, studied at the academy in that place, and closed his career there by his thesis De Potestate Ecclesice (1608, 8vo). After ordination, he became pastor of the parish of Francheval. In 1616 he was called to Sedan, and preached there until 1620, when he was made a professor in his alma mater. He held thle chair of theology and Hebrew, and so greatly distinguished himself that he was four times honored with the rectorate of that excellent Protestant seminary of divinity. He died in 1651, and left his colleagues to mourn the loss of a great and good man. All his writings give proof of profound scholarship, and a more than usual mastery of ancient Bible lore. He was an excellent polemic, and what he wrote as such the Romanists always found unanswerable. We note here, of his writings of this character, De Clahisto Redemptore (Sedan, 1620, 4to), and Tracite l'Adoration des Images (ibid. 1635, 8vo). His sixty-one theses on different Biblical subjects have been inserted in the Thesaurus Theologice Sedanensis, vol. ii. See Haag, La France Protestante, s. Hoefe, . Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
