Overview

Excerpt from The Life of Jean Frederic Oberlin: Pastor of the Ban De La Roche

The scene of the labours of Jean Frederic Oberlin has frequently been described in periodicals at home and abroad, and by visitors attracted there by veneration for this "great apostle of charity, this saint of the Protestant Church," as his countrymen delight, and with reason, to style him. "A visit to the Ban de la Roche," says a writer in the "Eglise et Patric," of September, 1880, "is not a visit in the ordinary sense; it is a pilgrimage." The late Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham made this pilgrimage in 1820, and an interesting sketch of the country, and of the character and work of Oberlin, given in a series of letters from Mrs. Cunningham to friends in England, was embodied in the "Memoir of J.F. Oberlin," published in London, in 1829.
