A series of public lectures by eminent national and international speakers on a wide range of contemporary issues in science and religion.

The first lecture series took place between December 2007 and June 2011. The new series started in September 2013.

The lectures derive their name from James Gregory, one of the most famous scientists to work at St Andrews. He was the first regius professor of mathematics in the University (in the 17th century), where, together with Newton and Leibniz, he helped found a major branch of mathematics called calculus and also invented one of the two main types of telescope, called the gregorian telescope.

The lectures are supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
