Throughout his life, Teilhard de Chardin led, in parallel to his scientific work, a continuous philosophical and religious reflection, trying to rethink the formulation of the Christian faith from the scientific vision of an evolving universe. The final elaboration of his thought and spirituality is found in the writings of the last five years of his life (1950-1955).
