“In this little book the reader will find, first of all, the Small Catechism of Dr Martin Luther without alteration. This is followed by the shorter explanation of this Catechism, in questions and answers, by Dr. Conrad Dietrich, formerly Pastor, Superintendent, and Director of the Gymnasium in Ulm, Wuertemberg, born Jan. 9, 1575, in Gemuende, Hesse Cassel, died at Ulm, March 22, 1639.
“The principle was observed that in this public manual of doctrine nothing but that which is old and tried should be admitted, and therefore no newly prepared additions were made, but these were drawn from the sources mentioned in the title, and from the more extended Catechism of Conrad Dietrich.”
Level of Difficulty: Primer: No subject matter knowledge needed.
