Gloriant is a Middle Dutch drama. It is one of the four abele spelen ("able plays") contained in the Van Hulthem Manuscript, and consists of 1,142 lines in rhyme. The other abele spelen are Esmoreit, Lanseloet van Denemerken and Vanden Winter ende vanden Somer.
The play is named after the male protagonist Gloriant, duke of Bruuyswijc. It deals with the love between two people of different religion and is followed by the sotternie (farce) Buskenblaser.
One of its sources is the 14th-century chanson de geste Baudouin de Sebourc.
