Pope Adrian 37th Psychristiatric is a concept album by the band Rudimentary Peni, recorded in 1992 and released in 1995. The majority of the album was written while lead singer/guitarist Nick Blinko was being detained in a psychiatric hospital under Section 3 of the 1983 Mental Health Act. The subject matter of the album relates to the delusions Blinko was experiencing at the time, particularly the idea that he was "Pope Adrian 37th" — a reference to Pope Adrian IV.

Adding to the album's unique sound, the pseudo-latinized phrase "Papas Adrianus" (Pope Adrian) is looped and can be heard in the background through the entire album.
