Eden Florida Courses

In order to meet the growing need for degree and non-degree seminary education in Florida, Eden Theological Seminary now offers masters-level courses that are hosted either in a convenient Florida location or offered as a synchronous distance course. Taught by full-time Eden faculty, the courses combine face-to-face classroom instruction with online learning.


HT123 Church History II
Dr. Adam Ployd
Assistant Professor of Church History and Historical Theology

This course is a survey of Christian history and thought from roughly 1300 to the present. We will focus on two historical phenomena that continue to affect the way many Christians express and live their faith: (1) the Reformation(s) of the 16th century and (2) the advent of “Modernity.” As we move from Martin Luther to Martin Luther King, Jr., we will attend especially to the theme of “authority.” This will allow us to track changes in everything from the use and interpretation of scripture to the conflicts between reason and faith to the relationship between religious and political authorities. 


This course will be a distance, synchronous course held on the Eden campus.  Students must have tele-conference capability including a webcam.

The course meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:00p-9:00p, September 9th through December 9th, 2015.

This course is open to lay, ordained, and ministerial track candidates. Non-degree students may take the course for credit or as an auditor.  The cost to take the course for credit is $1575.  Auditors pay $350.
