Welcome to the Immortality Project "legacy" page!

This website is a current listing of publications and summary outputs of the Templeton grant devoted to scientific, philosophical, and theological research that advances understanding of immortality, and belief in immortality.

Although the grant period ended in 2015, the research is ongoing. Many journal articles and some books have been published, and we anticipate more to come in the years ahead. Click here for a current listing.

In October 2018, the John Templeton Foundation commissioned a post-grant research review outlining the grant's impact on immortality- and death-related research. Click here to read the report.
