Hermann Muhs (May 16, 1894 - April 13, 1962) was a Secretary of State and minister responsible for churches question (Minister für Kirchenfragen) in Nazi Germany.
After World War I Muhs studied law in Göttingen and graduated in 1922. He opened a lawyer office and became a member of the NSDAP in 1929. From 1930 he was a member of the Prussian State Parliament and after 1933 he became the district president of Hildesheim.
In 1935 Muhs was the Secretary of State in the Reichsministerium für Kirchenfragen. His synchronization efforts and theological incompetence caused many disputes with the churches.
Against the orders of Heinrich Himmler who wanted to draw distance between the Schutzstaffel and the Church, Muhs participated in the funeral of Archbishop Karl Joseph Schulte in a SS uniform in 1941. Muhs, who had the rank of a SS-Oberführer, was expelled from the SS. Nevertheless, after the death of Hans Kerrl he was still the Minister für Kirchenfragen till 1945.
