Born into a wealthy Protestant family, Lutteroth settled in France and dedicated himself to evangelism. He helped found the Société Évangélique de France, the Société des Traités Religieux and the Société de l’Histoire du Protestantisme Français. He also established several newspapers, including the l’Almanach des Bons Conseils in 1826, and Le Semeur, a weekly journal of politics, philosophy and literature, in 1833. In 1834 he published a collection of Huguenot hymns titled Chants Chrétiens. Starting in the 1850s, he devoted himself to the work of exegesis and historical research. He lived for many years at Castle Bourneville, near La Ferté-Milon.
