Vulliemin, Loris

Vulliemin, Loris a Protestant theologian, was born at Yverdon, Switzerland, September 7, 1797. He was educated in the institute of the famous Pestalozzi, and pursued his philosophical as well as theological studies at Lausanne. He was ordained in 1821, and acted for several years as vicar in various places. But his delicate health prevented him from assuming a pastorate, and he betook himself to literary work. In 1828 he published an Essai sur Evangile; in 1829, Considerations sur les Mours des Chretiens, leur Culte et leur Gouvernment Pendant les Trois Premiers Siecles. To the same, period belongs his translation of Geschichte der Schweizer Confederation, by Johannes von Miller. In 1849 Vulliemin was made professor of theology at Lausanne, and took an active part in the ecclesiastical affairs of his country. In 1865 he resigned his professorship, and died August 10, 1879.
