To me, theology is a lot like physics, trying to answer fundamental questions. Like physicists, theologians are split on Religion. Like physicists, there are applied and theoretical theologians. Applied theology opportunities are mostly available in schools of religion. Those who are not religious are most often found in philosophy departments.
You seem to be totally oblivious to all this--even though I have provided links and quotes in the past.
The nearest I ever got to professionl theologicans was at Cornell. The only figure I remember from that time was Paul Tillich, but he died before I even knew what theology was:
a good book that gets into that special niche in German 19th century thinking was Hesse's Magister Ludi (The Glass Bead Game):
The Glass Bead Game is set in a distant, possibly post-apocalyptic future and tells the life story of Joseph Knecht, who at the beginning is a young initiate in Castalia, a monastic order of secular scholars. His fellow monks study various subjects, but they are linked by a vaguely defined activity called the Glass Bead Game. Hesse never explains the game, except to say that it involves all forms of knowledge, particularly mathematics and music. Knecht works his way up in the order, finally becoming the Magister Ludi, or master of the game.
