Robert Manning (1655, Amsterdam - 4 March 1731, Ingatestone Hall) was an English Roman Catholic priest and controversialist.

Born to an English mother and Dutch father, Robert Manning entered the English College, Douai in 1668, and later taught humanities and philosophy there. Ordained priest in 1690, he was sent to the English mission in 1692, becoming chaplain to Lord Petre and other members of the Petre family at Ingatestone Hall.

"Stylish, learned, and dialectically convincing, Manning produced a string of polemical works that rank him as one of the leading figures in that silver age of English Catholic controversial writing."
