Sir Edwyn Clement Hoskyns, 13th Baronet, MC (1884–1937) was an English Anglican priest and theologian.

Hoskyns was born on 9 August 1884 in Notting Hill, London, the eldest child and only son of Bishop Edwyn Hoskyns and his wife Mary Constance Maude.[1] He was a fellow and Dean of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge,[1] and a notable biblical scholar. On his father's death in 1925, he succeeded to the Hoskyns' baronetcy. His influence on the next generation of clergymen was considerable,[citation needed] e.g., on Michael Ramsey,[2] Gabriel Hebert,[citation needed] Christopher Evans,[3][4] and Donald Lynch.[5]

He died on 28 June 1937 in London and was buried in Grantchester, Cambridgeshire.[1]
