Arthur Gabriel Hebert SSM (1886–1963) was a monk of Kelham, Nottinghamshire, (more strictly a member of the Society of the Sacred Mission) and a proponent within Anglicanism of the ideas of the Liturgical Movement. As such he was in familiar contact with Benedictine monasteries in Austria and Germany. Hebert also had contacts with artists and with Protestant circles in Switzerland and with Lutheran High Church movement in Sweden. He was very much aware of the social implications of liturgical renewal in Continental Europe.

Hebert was in some respects a disciple of Dom Gregory Dix.
