Emil Friedrich Kautzsch (September 4, 1841 – May 7, 1910) was a German Hebrew scholar and biblical critic, born at Plauen, Saxony. He was educated at Leipzig, in whose theological faculty he was appointed privatdocent (1869) and professor (1871). Subsequently he held chairs at Basel (1872-80) and Tübingen (1880-88) and received a professorship at Halle in 1888.

Kautzsch traveled to Ottoman Palestine in 1876, and he became one of the founding members of the Palestine Exploration Society of Germany the following year.[1] He was also one of the editors of the Theologische Studien und Kritiken, beginning in 1888.
