Richard Hakluyt (født i 1552 eller 1553, død 23. november 1616 i London) var en engelsk geograf, prest og forfatter.

Liv og virke[rediger | rediger kilde]

Richard Hakluyt studerte i Oxford og innførte som professor i kosmografi bruken av globuser i englelsk skoleundervisning.

Hakluyt var i 1583 som kapellan med den engelske sendemann sir Edward Stafford til Paris. Han ble i 1590 utnevnt til sogneprest i Wetheringsett-cum-Brockford i Suffolk og ble i 1603 valgt til erkedegn i Westminster Abbey.

Han viet sitt liv til studiet av de geografiske oppdagelsers historie og framla resultatet av sin forskning i flere arbeider, blant annet i Divers Voyages Touching the Discoverie of America (1582) og hans hovedarbeide The Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation (1598–1600; nytt opplag 1809–12).
