Lord Gifford’s bequest to the Scottish universities was given in the confidence that a Christianity interpreted as the expression of Spinoza’s metaphysics was compatible with science. As Gifford Lectures são séries anuais de palestras estabelecidas por vontade de Adam Gifford (Lord Gifford), morto em Foram estabelecidas para "promover e difundir o estudo da teologia natural no sentido mais amplo do termo — em outras palavras, o conhecimento de Deus." A indicação para as palestras Gifford é uma das mais prestigiosas honrarias na academia escocêsa.

    His Gifford Lectures will explore the links between nature, religion and the language habits our society has developed. Lord Williams will speak at pm on 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, and 14 November in the University's Assembly Hall at New College on Mound Place. And Harlan Beckley notes that Hauerwas" seizes the occasion of the Gifford Lectures to contend that the natural theology Lord Gifford advocated contradicts itself." Any book that manages to put a twinkle in the eye of people who write book reviews for a living must be worth reading—maybe twice.

The Gifford Lectures. A prestigious series of lectures on natural theology, unique to the ancient universities of Scotland, established by the late Lord Gifford of Scotland.
