Albinus[1] (died 1197) was an Italian Cardinal of the late twelfth century. An Augustinian regular canon, he was Bishop of Albano from 1189 to 1197.[2]

He was a legate and an important figure of the papal curia. He was also the author of the Gesta pauperis scolaris, a major source of the Liber Censuum. In politics, he was on good terms with Tancred of Lecce[3]

He was created cardinal-deacon in 1182,[4] and cardinal-priest with the title of S. Croce in Gerusalemme in 1185.[5]
