Böhem, David (16th century)
David Böhem (Behem) was a minister in the Auspitz congregation in Moravia ca. 1530, who was associated with Jörg Zaunring, Burkhard von Ofen, and Adam Schlegel in the leadership. He is called "Behemisch David" von der Schweintz (Schweinitz) in the Hutterite Chronicle. In 1531 he was excommunicated, as were Burkhard and Adam. Nothing further is known of him.
