Born: September 7, 1640, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Died: 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.
