The Templeton Dissertation Fellows in Evil in Early Modern Philosophy of Religion and Theology Program

The Templeton Dissertation Fellows in Evil in Early Modern Philosophy of Religion and Theology Program will provide at least two one-year awards with the possibility of a second year renewal in 2011 and up to two one-year awards in 2012. Fellows will spend their time in residence at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, interacting with leading scholars in early modern philosophy of religion and theology, and the philosophy of religion, for the purpose of undertaking cutting-edge doctoral research on their topic.

The University of Notre Dame provides unique opportunities for sustained contact with scholars in philosophy of religion, theology, and early modern philosophy—contacts which not only can be quite helpful but, in the case of some topics, are the necessary prerequisites for excellent scholarship in the field.

Each Dissertation Fellow will receive a $25,000 fellowship award, plus up to $5,000 for relocation, travel and research. In addition, fellows will have joint access to up to $12,000 to select and bring in outside speakers and visitors for short periods during their tenure, under the oversight of the fellowship directors (Logistical and administrative details will be handled by the Center’s administrative staff.)

The three major components of the Templeton Dissertation Fellows in Early Modern Philosophy of Religion Program are:

- Undertaking cutting edge research on the problem of evil in early modern philosophy of religion and theology.

- Researching the extent to which conceptions of the nature and reality of evil were transformed and advanced in the distinctive intellectual culture of the seventeenth century.

- Utilizing the rich resources that are available at the University of Notre Dame and the Center for Philosophy of Religion.
