Juan de Pineda (Madrigal de las Altas Torres 1513 - Medina del Campo 1593) was a writer and a historian of the Spanish Golden Age.

After graduating from the University of Salamanca in 1540, he became a Franciscan.

Perhaps is most notable work is Monarchia Ecclesiastica (1576), which manages to cite almost every source and author known at the time.
