Joachim Sterck van Ringelbergh (Joachimus Fortius Ringelbergius) (Antwerp, c. 1499 – c. 1531) was a Flemish scholar, humanist, mathematician and astrologer.

His Lucubrationes vel potius absolutissima kyklopaideia (Basileae: Westheimer, 1538) was the first work to use a version of the word "cyclopaedia" in its title.

He is known also for his book on pedagogy, De Ratione Studii.[1]
