Norman Golb (1928- ) is the Ludwig Rosenberger Professor in Jewish History and Civilization at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. He earned his PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 1954.

Golb has been a key proponent of the viewpoint that the Dead Sea Scrolls were not the product of the Essenes, but rather of many different Jewish sects and communities of ancient Israel. Golb was also the discoverer, in 1962, of the Kievan Letter, the earliest document attesting to Jewish habitation of Kiev.
