Bernadine a Piconio (Henri Bernardine de Picquigny) (1633 – 8 December 1709) was a French Capuchin theologian and exegete.

He was born and educated at Picquigny, Picardy, and joined the Capuchins in 1649. As professor of theology he shed great lustre upon his order; his best-known work is his "Triplex expositio epistolarum sancti Pauli" (Paris, 1703 [French], 1706 [English, tr. Prichard], London, 1888), popular among Scriptural scholars. Piconio also wrote "Triplex expositio in sacrosancta D. N. Jesu Christi Evangelia" (Paris, 1726), and a book of moral instructions. A complete edition of his works, "Opera omnia Bernardini a Piconio", was published at Paris (1870-2). He died in Paris.[1]
