Moyer Lectures

The Moyer Lectures were an annual series of theological lectures delivered in London from 1719 to 1774, designed to support the orthodox interpretation of the Christian Trinity.

The initial lecturer was Daniel Waterland, who had much to do with the selection of lecturers in the early years. The series was endowed by the 1723 will of Rebecca Moyer, widow of the merchant Sir Samuel Moyer.[1]

The final lecture series was given by Thomas Morell.[2] At this point Lady Moyer's heirs exercised their option to discontinue the series.[3]
