Hieronymus de Bosch or Jeronimo de Bosch (23 March 1740 in Amsterdam – 1 June 1811 in Leiden) was a Latin poet and notable scholar from the Netherlands. He wrote several books, the most important of which was the "Anthologia Graeca", containing the Anthology of Planudes with Latin translation.[1][2]

In 1808 he was asked by Louis Bonaparte to be a member of the committee for the formation of the Koninklijk Instituut along with Martinus van Marum, Jean Henri van Swinden, and Martinus Stuart. He subsequently became member of the institution.[3] His sister married the Haarlem minister and librarian Abraham de Vries.
