Caspar Stieler (1632-1707), chiefly known today as the author of erotic love song texts and melodies, serio-comic musical dramas, a treatise of journalism , and his ground-breaking dictionary, also wrote devotional texts and published compilations of prayers together with devotional song texts and their melodies that combined his own creations with those of other authors of Evangelical Lutheran Germany. His four surviving compilations (and their various later editions) are discussed in the context of treatment of the religious practices of the times, especially private and domestic devotional exercises. In addition, the study places the compilations in the spiritual movements with which Stieler became involved in the period from around 1665 through 1686, and in particular examines the evidence in these collections of his relationship with Ahasverus Fritsch, an early proponent of Philipp Jakob Spener's Pietism. This study of the devotional handbooks also relates them to Stieler's life, to his other publication activities, and to his life-long involvement with vocal music as composer and as poet of texts designed to be set to music.
