Stephan Ackermann (born Mayen, 1963) is a German bishop. He was appointed Bishop of Trier (or Treves) in the Moselle area of Germany, in 2009.[1]


He had previously served with the title of Sozopolis in Haemimonto as auxiliary bishop in the same diocese from 2006.[2] Ackermann was educated at secondary school level in Andernach. He has studied at the Gregoriana in Rome, and at the Jesuit-run Sankt Georgen Graduate School of Philosophy and Theology in Frankfurt.[3][citation needed] In 2000 he received his doctoral degree at Fachbereich Dogmatik bei P. Medard Kehl SJ.

The French newspaper La Croix has described Ackermann as a vigorous spokesman for the Catholic Church in Germany.[4]
