Saint Solus (? - 794) was an English missionary, who spread Christianity in the German region Franconia.

In 744 Solus was ordained as priest by Saint Boniface. He moved to the village Solnhofen (then Husen) and created there a small church. In 793 Charlemagne gave Solus the town as a gift. Solas church holiday is the 5th December.
