A mortalist is someone who believes the soul is mortal. What is the proper name for someone who believes the soul is immortal? "Immortal soulist" sounds odd! "Immortalist"?

The standard categories are 'conditional immortality' and 'unconditional immortality'. I've not seen people referred to as 'mortalists'.

Is there a noun for someone who believes in 'conditional immortality' and a noun for someone who believes in 'unconditional immortality'?

I've never seen one used. Reading through my research notes I have found people referred to as 'mortalists' without identifying which form of mortalism they hold, but I haven't found 'immortalists' or another specific term, used of the opposite position.
