Berthold of Moosburg (died after 1361[1]) was a German Dominican theologian and neo-Platonist of the 14th century, teaching in Regensburg in 1327.[2]

His Expositio super Elementationem theologicam Procli, written between 1340 and 1361,[3] was a major statement of the importance for Platonism of Proclus.[4] He opposed his Christian-Platonic synthesis to Aristotelian philosophy.[5] His sources included Theodoric of Freiberg and Albertus Magnus.[6][7]
