Tomáš Halík

Tomáš Halík is a Czech Roman Catholic priest, philosopher, theologian and social scientist. He has also practised for many years as a psychotherapist. Currently he is Professor of Sociology at Charles University and Pastor of the parish of St, Salvator in Prague. In 2014, he was awarded the Templeton Prize, which honours a living person who has made exceptional contributions to affirming life’s spiritual dimensions, either through insight, discovery or practice.
Previous winners of the Templeton Prize include Charles Taylor (2007), Martin Rees (2010), the Dalai Lama (2012), Desmond Tutu (2013), Rabbi Jonathan Sacks (2016) and sadly, in the light of recent revelations, Jean Vanier (2015).
