Professor Seth Cherney was born and raised in a nominally Jewish family in California. In 1993, at the age of eighteen, he travelled to Rome to study philosophy at the Angelicum (Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas). After meeting John Paul II in the Hall of Paul VI during one of the Pope's monthly Rosaries, Prof. Cherney was baptised at midnight, only feet from the Vatican walls.

Prof. Cherney spent five years with the Communauté Saint Jean in France, longer than that at Santa Croce (Pontifical University of the Holy Cross) in Rome studying systematic theology, and a year in Jerusalem studying bible and archeology at the École biblique et archéologique française de Jérusalem.

He is currently teaching systematics and moral theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
