Robert Mascall (or Maschal) (died 1416) was a medieval Carmelite friar who served as the Bishop of Hereford from 1404 to 1416.

Mascall was born at Ludlow, Shropshire, where at an early age he became a Carmelite friar.[1] He was educated at the University of Oxford, gaining a distinction in philosophy and theology.[1] Probably in 1400, King Henry IV appointed Mascall his confessor.[1]
