Lars Roar Langslet (born 5 March 1936 in Nes, Buskerud) was Norwegian Minister of Education and Church Affairs (culture and science affairs only, not church affairs) in 1981, and Minister of Culture and Science 1982-1986 for the Conservative Party.

As Norway has a Lutheran State Church, his ministry had to be divided, since Langslet was a converted Catholic, and hence could not be in charge of the affairs of the state church.

He is a member of the Norwegian Academy for Language and Literature.[1] In 1984 he received the Fritt Ord Honorary Award.[2]

He was appointed a government scholar in 1997.
