Paulus Barbus (Paul Soncinas) (b. at Soncino, Lombardy, from where comes the name of Soncinas which appears at the head of his books; d. at Cremona, 4 August 1494) was an Italian Dominican philosopher and theologian.
He was esteemed by contemporary scholars, and notably by Pico della Mirandola. Many of his writings were lost at an early date.
