Saint Hubertus or Hubert ( 656–727 A.D.) was the first Bishop of Liège. He was a Christian saint who was the patron saint of hunters, mathematicians, opticians, and metalworkers. Known as the Apostle of the Ardennes, he was called upon to cure rabies until the early 20th century through the use of the traditional St Hubert's Key.

Saint Hubertus was widely venerated during the Middle Ages. The iconography of his legend is entangled with the legend of Saint Eustace. The Bollandists published seven early lives of this popular saint (Acta Sanctorum, November, i., 759–930 A.D.); the first of these was the work of a contemporary. Unfortunately, it is very sparing of details.

He died 30 May 727 A.D. in Tervuren near Brussels, Belgium. His feast day is November 3.
