Jean-Pierre Gibert (1660–1736) was a French canon lawyer.
Gibert was born at Aix-en-Provence. He became a cleric at an early age, receiving the tonsure only; he studied in Aix, and became doctor of theology and canon law. He taught ecclesiastical law in the seminaries of Toulon and Aix, and settled in Paris in 1703, where he lived and worked in retirement and where he died.
Gilbert was a moderate Gallican.
