Franz Schmidberger (born October 19, 1946 in Riedlingenmarker, Germanymarker) is a priest of the Society of St. Pius X, founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

Graduated in 1972 in the University of Munichmarker, in the same year he entered the seminary of Econemarker where he was ordained priest on December 8, 1975. Later he taught in the seminary of Weissbad, the first German speaker of the Society.

In 1978 he founded the seminary of Zaitzkofen in Germanymarker, where he was appointed district superior from 1979.

In 1982 Schmidberger was appointed superior general of the society of St Pius X. In 1994, he was succeeded by Bishop Bernard Fellay, the present superior.

With Fellay, he is alleged to be part of a faction that favors reconciliation with Rome on the basis of the Campos precedent, a program which is reportedly opposed by the other three bishops of the SSPX.

In a letter that he addressed to the Catholic bishops of Germany in October 2008, Schmidberger rejected the description that Pope John Paul II had applied to the Jews: "our older brothers in the faith", and declared that "for as long as they do not distance themselves from their forefathers' guilt through the avowal of Christ's divinity and baptism, they are complicit in the deicide".
