Saint Lupicinus (c. 486) (also known as Lupicinus of Condat) was an Abbot and the Bishop of Lyon from 491 to 494.[1] His brother was Saint Romanus of Condat.[2] St. Lupicinus is noted for founding the abbeys of Saint-Claude in the Jura mountains and in the Lauconne districts of France. His successor was St. Rusticus, Archbishop of Lyon.

This Saint Lupicinus is not to be confused with Saint Lupicinus of Lipidiaco (Gaul) (died 500).
