The book was first printed at Lipsiae (variously, Leipzig) in 1723. This volume was printed the following year by Thomae Fritschii (variously, Thomas Fritsch).
The author of this book is listed on the title page as Jo. Francisci Buddei (25 June 1667- 19 November 1729). The German version of his name was Johann Franz Budde (variously, Buddeus). He was a German Lutheran theologian, who associated with Zinzendorf and Spangenberg, and therefore was suspected of heresy at one time. Budde was named to the position of Professor of Greek and Latin in 1692 at the University of Coburg. He then was appointed Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Halle in 1693 and Professor of Theology in 1705 at the University of Jena. In 1715 Budde was named Primarius of his faculty and became a member of the consistory.
