University of Catholic Theology (KHKT) in Cologne can look forward to a new Old Testament lecturer. Tobias Hanner, a priest from the diocese of Basel, is currently completing his training in the Book of Job in Augsburg.
Tobias Hanner (42), pastor of the diocese of Basel, will be a lecturer in the Old Testament at the University of Catholic Theology (KHKT) in Cologne. “I am interested in powerful science and exciting research,” said Hanner in an interview with the Swiss portal kath.ch from Zurich.
Think little about the liberal and conservative labels. The university, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Cologne, claims to have won another Faith Chair, Manuel Schlogel.
Founder of the Ecumenical Institute
Tobias Hanner studied Catholic theology in Lucerne, Jerusalem and Augsburg. He is currently completing his training in the Book of Job in Augsburg. The priest is part of the founding team of an Ecumenical Institute in Lucerne.
At KHKT he became a lecturer in the chair of “Introduction and Interpretation of the Old Testament, including Dialogue with Near Eastern Cultures”; According to the information, Manuel Shalul will act in the future as the head of the doctrinal and ecumenical dialogue. “
The diocese of Cologne took over the church and the state recognized the KHKT from the Styler missionaries. The matter no longer wanted to continue establishing for financial and personal reasons. The university is moving from Sankt Augustin to Cologne in the summer semester 2021
