The Forgeries of Lorch, also known as Lorch Forgeries, is a collection of forged papal bulls completed in the second half of the 10th century.

Most specialists agree that the collection of documents, known as the Forgeries of Lorch, was completed for Piligrim, who was made Bishop of Passau in 971. After he came into conflict with Frederick I, Archbishop of Salzburg for the ecclesiastic jurisdiction in Pannonia, Piligrim forged papal bulls. The earliest of the bulls was attributed to the 4th-century Pope Symmachus.
