Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Gifford Lectures are held regularly at the four ancient Scottish Universities of Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and St Andrews, with the exception of the Second World War 1942-1945. The Gifford Lecture series deals with religion, science and philosophy, and was established under the will of Adam Lord Gifford, a Senator of the College of Justice, who died in 1887.
His bequest allows the University to invite notable scholars to deliver a series of public lectures on themes related to ‘natural theology’, in the widest sense of the terms.
Since the first lecture series in 1888, delivered at the University of Glasgow by German-born scholar Max Müller, Gifford Lecturers have been recognised as pre-eminent thinkers in their respective fields.
