Saint Joseph Oriol (José Orioli) (November 23, 1650 – March 23, 1702) is venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church. He is called the "Thaumaturgus of Barcelona." A native of Barcelona, he studied in the University of Barcelona, receiving the degree of Doctor of Theology, 1 August 1674.

He was ordained priest on 30 May 1676. He visited Rome in 1686 and was granted a benefice in the church of Santa Maria del Pi, in Barcelona, were he is buried.

Wanting to experience martyrdom, he went to Rome in April, 1698, to offer himself for the foreign missions, but he fell sick at Marseilles, and returned to Barcelona. He was said to have prophetic and miraculous powers. The dying, the blind, the deaf and dumb, the lame, and the paralytic, were said to be instantly cured by him.
