Constantine Zuckerman (1957- ) is a French-Jewish historian and professor. He is Professor of Byzantine Studies at the Collège de France in Paris.

Zuckerman is the author of numerous articles about the Byzantine Empire, the Goths, the Magyars, the early Rus, and the Khazars, among other peoples. In "On the Date of the Khazars' Conversion to Judaism and the Chronology of the Kings of the Rus Oleg and Igor," Zuckerman used Khazar documents (the Kievian Letter, Khazar Correspondence, and Schechter Letter) to call into question the traditional dates for early Kievan Rus leaders. In the same article he asserted that the Khazars converted to Judaism in 861, during the visit of St. Cyril; he has since amended this view in light of the discovery of Khazar coins from the 830s bearing Jewish inscriptions.
