Johann Philipp von Sch nborn (6 August 1605 - 12 February 1673) was the Archbishop of Mainz from 1647 until 1673, the Bishop of W rzburg from 1642 until 1673, and the Bishop of Worms from 1663 until 1673. His contemporaries gave him the honorable titles of "The Wise," "The German Solomon," and "The Cato of Germany."Johann Philipp was born in Laubuseschbach (modern Hesse) to Georg von Sch nborn. He was probably christened as a Protestant, but he was educated by the Jesuits in Weilburg, Mainz, Orl ans and Siena. In 1621 he became a cleric (in expectation of a canonry) at W rzburg Cathedral, and in 1626 he received one in Mainz as well. In 1626 he received consecration in Mainz. He became a cathedral canon of W rzburg in 1629 and of Worms in 1630. He fled to Cologne with most of the high clergy in 1631 from the advancing armies of Sweden during the Thirty Years' War.
