Chapter seventeen provides insight into why Charles Hodge decided to leave his family and friends for a two-year study trip in Europe. Insecure about his own knowledge and abilities to train seminary students, Hodge applied to the Seminary Board for a European study leave, which the Board granted. He left in the Fall of 1826 and spent his first few months in Paris studying with Sylvestre de Sacy and Armand-Pierre Caussin de Perceval. While in Paris he also met Alexander von Humboldt, Phillip Stapfer, and General Lafayette.
