Malan, Rev. Caesar

HENRI ABRAHAM CAESAR MALAN (1787–1864), was born in Geneva, Switzerland and educated at Geneva College. He was ordained into ministry in 1810. He married the following year. But it wasn’t until 1814 that he received the truth of Jesus Christ, the message that he had been preaching. Henri preached against formalism of the church and spiritual apathy. In 1820 he built his own chapel to be separate from the National Church of Geneva. He received the Doctor of Divinity from the University of Glasgow in 1826. Besides books and tracts, he wrote hymns, both words and music. He was the father of Solomon Caesar Malan, an accomplished linguist.
