Biography

Together with his wife Theresa, Christoph Heilig has studied theology in Gießen, St Andrews and Göttingen from 2009-2014 with a scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation. He has received a Master of Letters in “Biblical Languages and Literature” from St Mary’s College (University of St Andrews) with a work on lexical semantics of the New Testament. His research aims at combining insights from the philosophy of science with the study of the New Testament books within their cultural contexts. Since October 2014, he has been working on an SNF-project initiated by Prof. Frey attempting to elucidate the relevance of Jewish traditions for Paul’s mindset and letter writing.

Since 2016, he is coordinator of the programme for doctoral studies at the depatment of theology at the University of Zurich.
