Saint Frederick of Hallum (Frisian: Freark fan Hallum) (c. 1113 – March 5, 1175) was a Premonstratensian priest and regular canon, founder and first abbot of Mariengaarde Abbey in Friesland in the Netherlands.
He died and was buried at Mariengaarde but in 1614, to save his relics from the Calvinists, they were removed and taken to Bonne-Espérance Abbey near Estinnes in Belgium, where they were reinterred in 1616 or 1617. They were transferred to Leffe Abbey near Dinant in 1938.
His feast day, celebrated by the Premonstratensian Order and in the Archdiocese of Utrecht, is 4 February.
