The Dwight H. Terry Lectureship, also known as the Terry Lectures, invites preeminent scholars in religion, the sciences and philosophy to address issues concerning the ways in which science and philosophy inform religion and religion’s application to human welfare. The lectures are typically four in number and are usually delivered over two weeks. Established in 1905 by a gift from Dwight Harrington Terry of Bridgeport, Connecticut, it is among Yale’s most distinguished lectureships and has yielded important and enduring books, which are published by Yale University Press.
