Cornelius Vollmer has recently finished his doctoral studies at the Institute of Classical Archaeology in Tubingen with a thesis on the iconography of the Empty Throne. Prior to that, he studied classical archaeology, ancient and art history as well as Protestant theology at the University of Tubingen. He received research grants from the State of Baden Württemberg, the DAAD and the Gerda Henkel Foundation.
Cornelius Vollmer collaborated under the supervision of Professor Drecoll on a new critical edition of the late writings of Augustine from 2006 to 2009. During his research project at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg he will deal with the question, if sacral kingship has been an antitype to the ancient mystery cults.
