Souchon, Adolf Friedrich

Souchon, Adolf Friedrich, a German theologian, was born at Magdeburg, Aug. 10, 1807. He studied theology at Berlin, and in 1830 he entered upon his first ministerial duties in Strasburg in the Uckermark. In 1834 he was called to Berlin, first as pastor of the French Church in the Louisenstadt, and in 1854 as pastor of Trinity Church, where Sclleiermacher and Krummacher preached before him. Soon after 1854 he was also made a member of consistory. Early in 1878 he was obliged to retire from the ministry on account of bodily infirmities, and died at Mirow, in Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Aug. 27, 1878. Souchon was one of the most prominent ministers of Berlin, and enriched the homiletical literature by his collections of sermons on the gospels and epistles of the Christian year, his sermons on the passion of Christ, and other sermons.
