In 1995, he passed the theological exam of the Protestant-Lutheran State Church of Hannover and received the diploma in protestant theology from the University of Göttingen. From 1995 to 2000, he was Research Assistant at the Faculty of Theology of the University of Zurich, where he obtained his doctoral degree in 1999, with a thesis on “Methapher und Lebenswelt. Hans Blumenbergs Metaphorologie als hermeneutische Phänomenologie geschichtlicher Lebenswelten und ihr religionsphänomenologischer Horizont”. Following his time as managing Oberassistent of the Institute for Hermeneutics and Philosophy of Religion (Institut für Hermeneutik und Religionsphilosophie) at the Faculty of Theology of the University Zurich, where he obtained his post-doctorate lecturing qualification in 2006 with a treatise on “Passivität aus Passion. Zur Problemgeschichte einer categoria non grata”, and fellowships at the Law School of Yale University and the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, he was made Chair for Systematic Theology and Philosophy of Religion at the Faculty of Theology of the University of Rostock in 2007.
Apart from his research in theology and philosophy of religion, Stoellger’s interest lies in the field of interdisciplinary visual studies.
