Theodor Hubert Weber (January 28, 1836, Zülpich, Rhine Province - January 12, 1906) was a German theologian and professor of philosophy.


Weber was born in Zülpich. He was the second bishop of the German Old Catholic Church, and one of the more important followers of Anton Günther's philosophy.

In 1858 he obtained his doctorate of philosophy at the University of Bonn under the tutelage of Franz Peter Knoodt (1811-1889). In 1860 he received his ordination in Breslau, and from 1862 to 1864 was a schoolteacher in the town of Sagan. In 1868 he received his habilitation, later serving as a professor of philosophy at the University of Breslau (1872 to 1890).

In 1890 he relocated to Bonn, where he was named vicar-general by Joseph Hubert Reinkens (1821-1896). In 1896 he succeeded Reinkens as bishop of the German Old Catholic Church.
