Reinald (died 18 January 1135) was a Norwegian Catholic bishop. He was the first bishop of the Diocese of Stavanger, coming from Winchester in England. He is known for having initiated the construction of the Stavanger Cathedral, supposedly around 1125. Being in conflict with the king, Harald Gille, he was hanged in Bergen on 18 January 1135.[1][2]
