The Heidelberg Catechism received its name from being composed in Heidelberg at the request of Elector Frederick III (1516-1576), ruler of the Palatinate, an influential German province. To secure harmony in Protestant teaching and to facilitate the establishment of the Reformed faith in his province, this pious prince commissioned Zacharias Ursinus (1534-1583), twenty-eight years of age and professor of theology at the Heidelberg University, and Caspar Olevianus (1536-1587), twenty-six years old and Frederick's court preacher, to prepare a Reformed catechism for instructing the youth and guiding pastors and teachers.
