The Professor of Humanity is a Professorship at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. Under the Nova Erectio of James VI the teaching of Latin was in the responsibility of the Regents. The title of Professor of Humanity was, on occasion, attached to one of the Regents' number from 1618.
A separate Chair was created in 1682. After lapse it was revived in 1706.
