Paul Philippe Hardouin de Beaumont de Péréfixe (1606 – 1 January 1671, Paris) was a French historian and clergyman. He was bishop of Rodez, then archbishop of Paris.

Born at Beaumont, Vienne into a family of Neapolitan origin, he was the son of a maître d'hotel to Richelieu. He studied at the Université de Poitiers and in Paris, receiving his doctorate at the Sorbonne. In 1644, he became preceptor to Louis XIV, which also made him his confessor.
