Braun, Johann Wilhelmn Joseph a German theologian, was born at Gropau, April 27, 1801. In 1820 he went to Cologne to prepare himself for the ecclesiastical calling, and in 1821 to Bonn, for the same purpose. At Vienna, in 1825, he entered the priestly office. He returned to Bonn, where he taught church history. In 1837 he went to Rome for the purpose of bringing about a reconciliation on the subject of the Hermesian doctrines. Returning to Bonn in 1839, he completed a course of ecclesiastical law. He was suspended from his duties as professor for zealously defending the ideas of his master, Hermes. He held his seat at the German national assembly of 1848, and in 1850 was a member of the first Prussian chamber. His principal works are, an edition of the OEuvres de Saint .Justin Martyr (Boni, 1830): — Bibliotheca Regularum Fidei (ibid. 1844): — Meletemata Theologica (ibid. 1837), and several others.
