Internationally renowned Polish physicist, philosopher and theologian Michał Heller has been awarded this year's Templeton Prize for outstanding achievement in philosophical and religious thought. The announcement was made March 12 in New York City and the award ceremony will take place May 7.

Heller was born in Tarnów in southeastern Poland in 1936. He is a member of the Papal Academy of Sciences, the Polish Astronomical Society, the International Society for General Relativity and Gravitation and the Center for Theology and Natural Sciences. He teaches at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Cracow and is the dean of the Academy's Faculty of Theology in Tarnów. Heller has written or co-written almost 500 publications.

The Templeton Prize is awarded annually by the Templeton Foundation, named after British entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir John Templeton who founded it in 1972. The award was initially known as the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion and was renamed the Templeton Prize for Progress Toward Research or Discoveries about Spiritual Realities in 2001. At over $1.6 million, it is the world's largest single financial award for individual intellectual achievement.
