The annual Philosophy of Religion Conference at Claremont Graduate University has a long history of providing a place for philosophical conversation about important themes in the philosophy of religion. It was established by John Hick, who held the Danforth chair from 1979 to 1992, with a special emphasis on issues of inter-religious dialogue. D.Z. Phillips, Hick’s successor, carried on the conference from 1993 to 2006, focusing on contemporary issues.

Ingolf Dalferth was named the Danforth chair in 2007, and the following year opened up conference discussions between leading scholars in philosophy of religion, theology, and religious studies to include younger scholars and junior researchers as equal partners in the conversation.
