Andreas Kobler (b. Mühldorf am Inn, in Bavaria, 22 June 1816 – Klagenfurt, 15 November 1892) was a Catholic historian. He made his preliminary studies at Landshut, and studied theology at Munich, where Johann Adam Möhler and Joseph Görres appear to have awakened in the young theologian his preference for the study of history.
After his ordination in 1840 he was a curate on the mission for four years, after which he entered the novitiate of the Society of Jesus in Graz. Later he was sent to America on account of the disturbances of 1848 in his own country, and was attached to the New York mission for five years, being occupied mostly as professor of mathematics. Returning to Europe, he taught in Pressburg until 1857, where he was sent to Innsbruck as professor of church history.
He held this chair for fourteen years, and was rector of the college of Innsbruck from 1861 to 1866. In 1871 he became once more professor of mathematics at Linz, and for two years rector of the college there. Returning then to Innsbruck, he dedicated nine years to literary work, was appointed superior (1887) of the seminary at Klagenfurt, where he was still vigorous and active in the pulpit when he died at the age of 75.
