About Samuele Bacchiocchi
Samuele Bacchiocchi (1938–2008) was an Italian-American scholar born and raised in Rome, before attending college in England. He came to America for graduate studies, earning MA and BD degrees at Andrews University Theological Seminary. Upon completing his seminary training in 1964, he served in Ethiopia for five years as Bible and history teacher.
In 1969, Bacchiocchi returned to his native Rome to study at the prestigious Pontifical Gregorian University, becoming the first non-Catholic admitted in its history of over 450 years. At the Gregoriana he invested five years in attaining a PhD in church history. Pope Paul VI awarded him a gold medal in recognition of summa cum laude classwork that culminated in his dissertation, From Sabbath to Sunday. After completing his doctorate in 1974, Bacchiocchi taught religion at Andrews University, in Michigan. Following 26 years as professor of theology and church history, he retired in 2000. Until his death in 2008, he traveled globally, lecturing at universities, seminaries, and religious convocations. His lifeworks include 15 books plus numerous articles in journals and magazines.
