    Michael Bourdeaux – Templeton Prize

    "An Anglican priest, Bourdeaux devoted his life to defending the rights of people persecuted for their religious beliefs, particularly in Eastern Europe.

    He received the Templeton Prize in 1984 in recognition of his efforts to examine and explain the systematic destruction of religion in Iron Curtain nations during the Cold War and to defend the rights of people in these countries to worship as they chose. When the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc regimes collapsed, Bourdeaux’s efforts for universal religious freedom were widely embraced."
