Téodor de Wyzewa, born as Teodor Wyżewski, (12 September 1863 – 7 April 1917), was a leading exponent of Polish origin of the Symbolist movement in France. With Édouard Dujardin he created La Revue wagnérienne in 1885. He frequently contributed articles on European literature to the Revue des deux mondes. His translation of Jacobus de Voragine's Golden Legend into modern French made it available to a wide audience once more.

He was married to Marguerite Terlinden, the daughter of Belgian painter Félix Terlinden and the sister-in-law of the art critic and historian Pierre Francastel.
