Dr Karl Möller

Karl MöllerHaving grown up in the north of Germany, my wife Maja and I moved to Cheltenham in 1994 where I did my PhD in Old Testament at the University of Gloucestershire. In 2003 we came to Lancashire when I took up my posts at St Martin’s College (now the University of Cumbria) and the LCTP. Prior to that I was Course Co-ordinator for the Open Theological College and Research Fellow at the University of Gloucestershire.

We have two children, Tobias and Sarah, and my interests are cooking, good literature and football (German, of course).

My main research interests are the Song of Songs, the book of Amos and biblical hermeneutics.
