- Author BiographyDirk Evers is Professor for Dogmatics and Philosophy of Religion at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany. Before joining Halle University in 2010 as a faculty member, he worked as assistant professor at Tubingen University under Eberhard Jungel. Since his doctoral thesis on cosmology and doctrine of creation in 2000 he has been doing interdisciplinary work at the intersection of science and theology. He is trying to overcome traditional dichotomies by applying hermeneutical perspectives to the dialogue between science, the humanities and theology. Since 2014 he is president of ESSSAT (European Society for the Study of Science and Theology), and he is managing editor of the journal Philosophy, Theology, and the Sciences. Michael Fuller is a Fellow of New College at the University of Edinburgh. He studied Chemistry at the University of Oxford, where he was awarded a doctorate, and Theology at the University of Cambridge. He is an ordained Anglican priest, has served in churches in the dioceses of Oxford and Edinburgh, and is a Canon of St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh. For 14 years he ran the training programmes for those entering ministry in the Scottish Episcopal Church. He is the author and editor of a number of books and articles relating to the interactions of science and theology, and also relating to theological themes in literature and music. His research work focusses on contemporary theological apologetics. He is Chair of the Science and Religion Forum, and Vice-President for Publications of the European Society for the Study of Science and Theology.
