Renatus Profuturus Frigeridus was a fifth-century historian. He wrote a historical work of twelve volumes. It exists today only in fragments, but some passages have survived in chapters eight and nine of the second book of Gregory of Tours' Decem libri historiarum (Ten Books of Histories). Gregory likewise preserves parts of the late fourth-century historian Sulpicius Alexander.
