About Jean Henri Merle d’Aubigne

Jean Henri Merle d’Aubigne (1794–1872) was born in Geneva. He studied theology at the Académie de Genève. He was ordained in 1817, and moved to Berlin to study at the University of Berlin under August Neander. An 1817 celebration of Martin Luther’s life inspired him to write A History of the Reformation.

In 1818, Jean Henri Merle d’Aubigne became minister at the French Reformed Church in Hamburg, where he remained until he became pastor of a church in Brussels from 1823 to 1830. He returned to Geneva in 1831 to help found the theological seminary there, and became professor of church history. The 5-volume History of the Reformation of the Sixteenth Century was published in French between 1835 and 1853, and The History of the Reformation in Europe in the Time of Calvin was published between 1863 and 1878, the last three volumes published posthumously. During his lifetime, Jean Henri Merle d’Aubigne received honorary doctorates from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) and the University of Berlin.
