Zachary Seals focuses on the contribution church history can make to systematic theology and is particularly interested in the relationship between Reformation and medieval scholasticism. He received his Bachelor's degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Biola University in 2018 and a Master of Theology in History from the University of Edinburgh in 2019. His master's thesis is entitled "Peter Martyr Vermigli's Christology and its Medieval Sources: Assessing Continuity and Discontinuity" and focuses on the link between medieval and Reformed Christology.
In March 2020, he began doctoral studies under the supervision of Ueli Zahnd as part of an SNSF fellowship in the history of the Reformation at IHR and is proud to be collaborating on the SNSF project "A disregarded Past". His current research focuses on the doctrine of the beatific vision in Reformed Orthodoxy and its medieval antecedents.
