Joseph Naudet (8 December 1786 – 13 August 1878) was a French historian who was a native of Paris.

He initially worked at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, and was later a teacher of Latin poetry at the Collège de France. In 1817 he became a member of the Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres, where in 1852 he was appointed "secrétaire perpétuel". Naudet was also a member of the Académie des sciences morales et politiques and served as curator of the Bibliothèque Mazarine.

Among his written works was a three-volume edition of the comedies of Plautus titled- M. Accii Plauti Comoediae (1830)[1] and a work on Roman nobility called De la noblesse chez les Romains (1868). He also edited and translated works by Catullus, Horace, Lucan, Sallust, Seneca and Tacitus. With Pierre Daunou (1761-1840), he edited the twentieth volume of Recueil des historiens des Gaules et de la France (Compendium of Historians of Gaul and France).
