Clarembald (Clarembaud) of Arras[1] (c. 1110 – c. 1187) was a French theologian. He is best known for his Tractatus super librum Boetii De Trinitate, a commentary on the Opuscula Sacra of Boethius.[2]

He belonged to the School of Chartres, of William of Conches and Bernard Silvestris. He was a follower of Thierry of Chartres and Hugh of St. Victor, and an opponent of Gilbert of Poitiers.
