Sanderson, Robert, 1587–1663, English clergyman. Gaining William Laud's favor, he was appointed a royal chaplain in 1631 and regius professor of divinity at Oxford in 1642. Imprisoned during the civil war, he was reinstated to his professorship and named bishop of Lincoln in 1660. The second preface of the Anglican prayer book and the General Thanksgiving are attributed to him. His published writings include Logicae artis compendium (1618) and De obligatione conscientiae praelectiones decem (1660).
