Juan de Dicastillo (28 December 1584 in Naples – 6 March 1653 in Ingolstadt) was a Spanish Jesuit theologian. He entered the novitiate of the Society of Jesus in 1600, and was professor of theology for twenty-five years at Toledo, Murcia, and Vienna.


In moral theology, Dicastillo followed the principles of probabilism. His principal works are:

  • "De justitia et jure ceterisque virtutibus cardinalibus libriduo" (Antwerp, 1641);
  • "De Sacramentis in genere disputationes scholastic et morales" (Antwerp, 1646–52);
  • "Tractatus duo de juramento, perjurio, et adjuratione, necnon de censuris et poenis ecclesiasticis" (Antwerp, 1662);
  • "Tractatus de incarnatione" (Antwerp, 1642).
