Christoph Schulz [a/k/a Christopher Schultz] [1718-1789] was born in Silesia, Germany; his parents were well-to-do farmers and followers of the Schwenkfelder religion based on the teachings of the German Protestant Reformer Caspar Schwenckfeld von Ossig [1489-1561]. The Schwenkfelders were severely persecuted in Silesia by the Catholics, and many of them fled to the United States. Schulz's family were with a group who fled to Pennsylvania in the 1730s. Schulz was a devout follower of the Schwenkfelder religion and one of the leaders in promoting its religious body in Pennsylvania. He was chosen to prepare this catechism at a general conference held in 1762; the first printing was issued in 1763 under title: Catechismus, oder Anfänglicher Unterricht Christlicher Glaubens-Lehre. This 1784 is a second edition of that work with a variation of the title.
