Gerhardt is considered Germany's greatest hymn writer.He was Lutherian but a peacemaker with Reformists, he was respected and very well liked by all. His sermons and devotional writings were so free from controversy that many Reformed attended his services, and the wife of the Elector, Louisa Henrietta, was a great admirer of him and his hymns.
