Juan de Dicastillo (28 December 1584 – 6 March 1653) was a Spanish Jesuit theologian. He was born in Naples. 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. He died in Ingolstadt.
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).
