This course provides an overview of the institutionalization and Christianization of Europe, focusing on the philosophical system that came to triumph throughout the Roman Empire and how Christianity was institutionalized in response. The survey will also provide insight the Latin Church of the Medieval period, how it held sway over a precarious world, how it helped to hold a crumbling empire together, and how the Jews were affected as a result.
Church History Instructor
Dr. Jeffrey L. Seif
Dr. Seif was born into a German-Jewish family and was raised in a typical American-Jewish household, save the fact that he was sent off to go to school in a Yeshiva—an Orthodox Jewish training school. Though raised with a “traditional” Jewish upbringing, Jeff eventually came to a saving faith in Jesus, subsequent to which he experienced a “call” into vocational Gospel ministry. Jeff eventually went to school to prepare for the ministerial vocation, taking studies at the Moody Bible Institute, Trinity College, the Graduate Theological Foundation and then the theological Seminary at Southern Methodist University where he received both a master’s degree and doctorate. Jeff served as a missionary with the American Board of Missions to the Jews, and has held pastorates and other ministry posts for well over twenty-five years.
