Wolfgang Ullmann (18 August 1929 – 30 July 2004) was a German journalist, theologian, politician.


Wolfgang Ullmann was born in Bad Gottleuba near Dresden. From 1948 to 1954 he studied Protestant theology and also philosophy, first in Berlin and then at the University of Göttingen.

Following graduation he returned to East Germany in 1954 and became minister in Colmnitz, Saxony. In 1963 he was appointed lecturer in Church History at Naumburg.

From 1978, he was lecturer in Church History at the training centre of the Eastern Region of the then divided Evangelical Church in Berlin-Brandenburg in East Berlin.

Protected by the Protestant Church in East Germany, opposition movements against the regime in the GDR formed and in 1987 Wolfgang Ullman became a member of one of these group, the “Initiative for the Refusal of Practice and Principle of the Demarcation”.

After German reunification in 1990 he was a member of parliament (Bundestag) and from 1994 to 1998 a member of the European Parliament for Alliance '90/The Greens.[1]

He was married since 1956 and had three children including the composer Jakob Ullmann. He died during a holiday in the Ore Mountains.
