Abraham Bzowski (Bzovius) (1567–1637) was a Polish Dominican historian. He carried on the work of Baronius. The Catholic Encyclopedia calls his contributions for 1198 to 1571 "less notable" than some of other continuators,[1] namely Raynaldus, Laderchi, and August Theiner.

In 1630 Bzovius funded a scholarship for Polish students at the College of St Thomas, the future Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum.[2]
