The Spalding Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics is the holder of an endowed chair at the University of Oxford.[1] The Spalding Chair of Eastern Religions and Ethics was established on a trial basis in 1936 with a grant from the Spalding Trust. In 1937 the Chair was renewed for a period of 15 years and in 1949 the Trust gave the University a permanent endowment to fund the Chair.[2]

Holders of the Spalding Chair to date have been: Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (1936-1952), R. C. Zaehner (1952-1974), Bimal Krishna Matilal (1976-1991), and Alexis Sanderson (1992-present).
