Peter M. J. Hess earned his M.A. in philosophy and theology from Oxford
University in 1984, and his Ph.D. in historical theology from the Graduate
Theological Union in 1993. His scholarly work focuses on the complex
interactions between science and religion in early modern Europe, particularly
on the impact of science on natural theology, and the appropriation of the
developing sciences by theologians during this period. He has taught theology at
the University of San Francisco and other Bay Area institutions since 1985, and
has recently completed six years of service as Associate Program Director of the
Science and Religion Course Program (SRCP) at the Center for Theology and the
Natural Sciences in Berkeley, CA. He and his wife Viviane have two sons, and he
is an avid mountaineer and rock climber.
