Cogitosus (fl. c. 650) was an Irish monk and writer. Cogitosus was a monk of Kildare who wrote the oldest extant vita of Saint Brigit, Vita Sanctae Brigidae, around 650.[1] There is a controversy as to whether he was related to Saint Brigit.[2]

There are at least two contemporary English translations of Cogitosus's Life of St Brigid: one by Connolly and Picard in 1987[3] and another in 1993 by Liam da Paor.[4]
