The Chiesa di San Leonardo in Arcetri is a Roman Catholic church in Florence, Italy.

The church stands among olive groves on the Via San Leonardo, a country road on the southern outskirts of Florence, next to Villa Spelman, seat of the Johns Hopkins University Charles S. Singleton Center for Italian Studies. The church, which dates from the 11th century, is best known for its beautiful 13th century pulpit, formerly in the church of San Pier Scheraggio, now part of the Uffizi. Dante and Boccaccio are both said to have preached from the pulpit.
