Morlan-Pantyfedwen Annual Lecture

In 1961, the benefactor of the James Pantyfedwen Foundation instituted a series of annual DJ James Lectures on religious topics. The Trustees continued this tradition, although the Lecture was later delivered on a biennial basis. It was presented alternately in Welsh and English and delivered periodically at university venues in North and South Wales. Since 2015 however, this Annual Lecture has been organised in collaboration with the Morlan Centre for Faith and Culture in Aberystwyth, and is known as the 'Morlan-Pantyfedwen Lecture'. It will continue to be given alternately in Welsh and English, and held at the Morlan Centre every year.
A full list of previous Lectures is given below, with a * indicating that the text or the video of the lecture is available if you click on the title.
