Two generations Schortinghuis catechesis in a time of Piety and Enlightenment. In the history of Dutch reformed pietism, the Midwolda reverend Wilhelmus Schortinghuis is best known for his book 'Het innige christendom'. In this article, however, we focus on his far less known catechism-book, Nodige waarheden in 't herte van een christen, 1738 (Necessary truths in the heart of a Christian), and on the summary of this work edited by his sons, Verkort opstel der noodige waarheden,1769 (Abbreviated text of necessary truths). Changes in contents will be found, as well as changes in the cultural context for which the booklets were meant, Midwolda-Groningen 1738 (father) and Koudekerke-Zeeland 1769-1780 (the sons). The real author of the Abbreviated text was his son Hendrikus. Comparing the work of two generations, we may conclude, that most important changes were from a more subjective to a more objective theology.
