The prestigious Gifford Lectures have been delivered annually since 1888 by a succession of distinguished international scholars.
The Gifford Lectureships (held at the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and St. Andrews) were established under the will of Adam Lord Gifford (1820-1887), a Senator of the College of Justice at the University of Edinburgh.
Established to 'promote and diffuse the study of Natural Theology in the widest sense of the term - in other words, the knowledge of God,' the Lectureships have enabled a most notable field of scholars to contribute to the advancement of theological thought.
Gifford Lectureships are normally awarded by invitation of the Gifford Lectureship Committee.
