Philip Schaff (1819–1893) was a distinguished church historian who had an enormous influence on German Reformed churches in America. He was educated at Tübingen, Halle, and Berlin, and was professor of church history and biblical literature at German Reformed Theological Seminary in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. When the Civil War forced the seminary to close, Schaff moved to Union Theological Seminary in New York City.Among his most impactful works are History of the Christian Church (8 vols.), The Creeds of Christendom (3 vols.), and The Principal of Protestantism.
