Boos, Martin (1762-1825), a Catholic priest of Bavaria who began a kind of Pietist religious movement. He had a good deal of influence among his fellow-religionists, including many priests; but he was relentlessly persecuted by the majority, though he appears to have been in essentials a staunch Catholic. In 1817 he was appointed professor of divinity at Dusseldorf, and in 1819 removed to Sayn near Neuwied.
