Johann Jakob Schütz (Hymn-Writer)

Born: September 7, 1640 - Frankfurt am Main, Hesse, Germany
Died: May 22, 1690 - Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Johann Jakob Schütz studied at Tübingen (where he became a licentiate in civil and canon law).

After finishing his studies, Schütz began to practice law in Frankfurt, and in later years with the title of Rath. He seems to have been a man of considerable legal learning and piety. He left the Lutheran church sometime after 1685. His works include: Christliches Gedenckbüchlein, zu Beförderung eines anfangenden neuen Lebens (Frankfurt am Main, Germany: 1675); Christliche Lebensregeln (Frankfurt am Main, Germany: 1677).
