Bertrand de Turre[1] (c.1262-1332) was a French Franciscan theologian and Cardinal.

He was an opponent of the Franciscan Spirituals. He undertook diplomatic missions for Pope John XXII, with Bernard Gui. He was made Archbishop of Salerno and then Cardinal in 1320.

After the deposition of Michael of Cesena in 1328, he acted as vicar general of the Franciscan Order.

He was nicknamed Doctor famosus.
