Romano Guardini (1885 – 1968) was a Catholic priest, author, and academic.

Born in Verona, Italy in 1885, Guardini moved to Germany at the age of one and lived there all his life. He held academic positions at the Universities of Berlin, Tbingen, and Munich, but was prevented from teaching during much of the Second World War by the Nazis. His books were often powerful studies of traditional themes in the light of present-day challenges, or conversely examinations of current problems as approached from the Christian, and especially Catholic, tradition. Pope Paul VI offered him the cardinal's red hat in 1965, but he respectfully declined.

In 1952, Guardini won the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade.

Guardini died in 1968, and is buried in a little chapel of the Sankt Ludwig Kirche in Munich, where he preached several years.
