Gennadius of Massilia (died c. 496), also known as Gennadius Scholasticus or Gennadius of Marseille, was a 5th century Christian priest and historian.

His best-known work is De Viris Illustribus ("Of Famous Men"), a biography of over 90 contemporary significant Christians, which continued a work of the same name by Jerome.
