Louis-Joseph Maurin (15 February 1859 – 16 November 1936) was a Roman Catholic Cardinal and Archbishop of Lyon.

Maurin was ordained to the priesthood on 8 April 1882 in Rome. He did pastoral work in the diocese of Marseille from 1882 until 1911. On 1 September 1911 Pope Pius X appointed him Bishop of Grenoble, being consecrated by Pierre Andrieu in October of that year.

He remained in Grenoble until Pope Benedict XV appointed him Archbishop of Lyon on 1 December 1916. Three days later he was created and proclaimed Cardinal-Priest of SS. Trinità al Monte Pincio. Cardinal Maurin voted in the conclave of 1922 that elected Pope Pius XI.

He died in office on 16 November 1936.
