The Gifford Lectures

The Gifford Lectures are held at each of the four ancient Scottish universities.

They were established under the will of Adam Lord Gifford, a Senator of the College of Justice, who died in 1887.

The Lectures have enabled a notable field of scholars to contribute to the advancement of philosophical and theological thought.


Full details of the Gifford lectures are available on the Humanities and Social Sciences website.
