Agostino Bernal (born at Magallon in Aragon in 1587; died at Saragossa, 13 September 1642) was a Spanish Jesuit theologian.


He entered the Society of Jesus in 1603 when sixteen years old. A classical scholar, he taught humanities and rhetoric with success. The greater part of his life, however, he spent as professor of philosophy and theology at Saragossa.


His published works are:

  • "Disputationes de Divini Verbi Incarnatione" (Saragossa, 1639);
  • "Disputationes de Sacramentis in genere, Eucharistia et Ordine" (Lyons, 1651) a posthumous work.
