The Warburton Lectures (until the end of the nineteenth century often called the Warburtonian Lectures) are a series of theology lectures held in Lincoln’s Inn, London. They were established in 1768 with money given by William Warburton, and were intended to bring young divines to the notice of London audiences.[1] The set topic was the proof of Christianity through prophecies.[2]

Lincoln's Inn Chapel, traditional venue for the lectures.
