The Templeton Prize had been awarded annually since 1973, and is presented by a Foundation with the same name. The aim is to honour a person's work in "affirming life's spiritual dimension". Often given to religious figures or philosophers and scientists who try to engage with religion and spirituality, it is dubbed by some as a Nobel for Religion.

Given this background, it's somewhat of a surprise that it took 2012's winner so long to be awarded this prize. Who is 2012's awardee?
