This site is sponsored by the Hibbert Trust, which was founded in 1847 under the will of Robert Hibbert, a Unitarian. It seeks to promote liberal religion and upholds "the unfettered exercise of private judgement in matters of religion." The Hibbert Lectures have been promoted by the Trust for over 100 years, and have been given by such distinguished persons as Max Muller, Ernest Renan, Albert Schweitzer and Sir Rabindranath Tagore.

In recent years the Hibbert Lectures were broadcast by the BBC and included Dr David Jenkins former Bishop of Durham and the Venerable Bede Griffiths.
