After a year in which he has been applauded for criticising the excesses of capitalism and scooped Time magazine's person of the year award, Pope Francis has received another accolade, with Prospect magazine naming him as one of its top 50 world thinkers.

The pope is the only religious leader to make it into the latest edition of the annual list, which aims to recognise people who have influenced the year's biggest questions in politics, economics, science and philosophy.

The world's most important thinker will be voted on by the public in an online poll, in which Francis has the chance to follow in the footsteps of last year's winner, the militant atheist Richard Dawkins, who fails to feature in 2014's top 50.
