Jerolimo, the Spanish Brabanter is a play by Dutch writer Gerbrand Adriaensz. Bredero. Titled De Spaansen Brabander in Dutch, it was first performed in 1617. It is classified as a picaresque and said to be based on the Spanish picaresque Lazarillo de Tormes.

It is a satire upon the exiles from the south who filled the halls of the Amsterdam chambers of rhetoric with their pompous speeches and preposterous Burgundian phraseology.
