Pierre Mandonnet (26 February 1858, in Beaumont, Puy-de-Dôme – 4 January 1936, in Le Saulchoir, Belgium)[1] was a French-born, Belgian Dominican historian, important in the neo-Thomist trend of historiography and the recovery of medieval philosophy.[2][3] He made his reputation with a study of Siger of Brabant.[4]

In 1887 he was ordained as a priest, and from 1891 to 1919, was a professor of church history at the University of Fribourg. In 1902/03 he served as university rector.[5]
