Fr. Martin Cyril D'Arcy S.J. (1888–1976) was a Roman Catholic priest, philosopher of love, and a correspondent, friend, and adviser of a range of literary figures including Evelyn Waugh, Dorothy L. Sayers and W. H. Auden. He has been described as "perhaps England's foremost Catholic public intellectual from the 1930s until his death".
Educated at Stonyhurst, he entered the Society of Jesus in 1907 and was ordained priest in 1921. He was Provincial of the English Province of the Society of Jesus from 1945 to 1950.
He spent much of his working life at the English Jesuit house in Oxford, Campion Hall, but also spent periods in residence at American universities, including Georgetown University, Gonzaga University, Cornell, and at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.
His major work is The Mind and Heart of Love, published by T. S. Eliot at Faber and Faber in 1945.
The permanent collection of Loyola University Museum of Art is named in his memory the Martin D'Arcy Collection.
