The Church of Saint-Séverin (Eglise Saint-Séverin) is a small church in the Latin Quarter of Paris, located on the lively tourist street Rue St-Séverin. It is the oldest church that remains standing on the Left Bank, and it continues in use as a place of worship.

The church is dedicated to Séverin, who who lived and prayed there in a small oratory. After Séverin's death, a basilica was constructed, later destroyed by the Vikings.

The current church was started in the 11th century, though its major features are Gothic from the 15th century.
With some fine gargoyles, it has the oldest bell in Paris, cast in 1412.
