Curriculum vitae:

Professor Dr. theol. Thomas Hieke, born March 13, 1968,
married to Isabella Beyer, teacher at a High School level (Gymnasium) for German language and Religious education.
We two are happy about our daughter Rebecca-Laura (born 1999), our twins Riccarda Noemi and Leonard Joshua (born 2001) and our daughter Veronica Deborah Brigitta (born 2007).

I studied Catholic Theology at the universities of Bamberg and Innsbruck (Austria) and earned my first degree (Diplom) in 1992.
My main interests are Biblical Theology, Biblical Exegesis of the Hebrew Bible as well as the New Testament, especially the Synoptic Gospels.

From 1992 to 2000 I was member of the International Q Project. From 1992 to 1996 I prepared my dissertation about Psalm 80 and the communal laments (Hebrew Bible). I did my doctorate under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Hubert Irsigler in Bamberg (now Freiburg/Br., emeritus) .
From 1996 to 2000 I worked in a New Testament research project on the Synoptic Gospels (Prof. Dr. Paul Hoffmann).
From October 2000 to September 2007, I was Assistant Professor at the University of Regensburg, Biblical Theology: Exegesis and Hermeneutics of the Old Testament. Prof. Dr. Christoph Dohmen is Chair of the department for Old Testament Exegesis. I wrote my Habilitationsschrift about the genealogies in the Book of Genesis. The book is published as Herders Biblische Studien 39 (fall 2003). From October 2006 to September 2007, I was a substitute professor at the University of Mainz.

Since 2007 I teach as professor for Old Testament Exegesis at the University of Mainz.
