1640-1690

September 7, 1640, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

May 22, 1690, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

After studying at Tübingen (where he became a licentiate in civil and canon law), 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:

  1. Die Wollust dieser Welt
  2. Scheuet ihr, ihr matten Glieder
  3. Sei Lob und Ehr dem höchsten Gut
  4. So komm, geliebte Todes-Stand
  5. Was mich auf dieser Welt betrübt
