Immortality vs. Immortalism

These subject headings are often interposed, and sometimes incorrectly.  What we think of as immortality might not exactly agree with the definition laid down by the Library of Congress.

Here are the definitions as per Library of Congress:

Immortalism: Here are entered works on the concept of living
indefinitely in the flesh.  (body)

Immortality: Here are entered works on the concept of the
survival of the soul after death.  (soul)
