  • Name Dorthea Jensdatter Sadolin 
    Born Abt 1505 
    • Tausen found a fellow-worker and reformer in Jørgen Sadolin(c. 1490? 1559), whose sister, Dorothea Jensdatter Sadolin (c. 1510-1537), he married, to the great scandal of the Roman Catholics. He was the first Danish priest to take a wife. He was also the first of the reformers who used the Danish language instead of Latin in the church services, the Even song he introduced at Viborg being of great beauty. Tausen was certainly the most practically gifted of all the new native teachers. But he was stronger as a preacher and an agitator than as a writer, the pamphlets which he now issued from the press of the German printer Hans Vingaard, who settled down at Viborg, being little more than adaptations of Luther's Opuscula. He continued to preach in the church of the Franciscan monastery, while Sadolin, whom he had consecrated a priest, officiated at the church of the Dominicans, who had already fled from the town. The Franciscans only yielded to violence persistently applied by the soldiers whom their opponents quartered upon them.

      Jørgen Sadolin, Jørgen Jensen Sadolin , approx. 1499-19.12.1559, bishop. Jørgen Sadolin was born in Viborg, died in Odense and is buried in Gråbrødrekirke sst. a Latin family poem by Sadolin's son might cover it up by attributing Jens Christensen to teaching. It already gives his father the name Sadolin ((: saddler); Jørgen Sadolin, however, never seems to have called himself Sadolin, but more often after his birthplace Viborg. - Nothing is known about his youth.

      After academic studies (well in Germany) he returned as a master and avid Lutheran, probably in the summer or autumn of 1526, joining close to Hans Tausenwho had received Skt. His church was entrusted to Lutheran sermons, and became his most significant helper in the rapid victory of the gospel in Viborg. In particular, he undertook to train preachers, and on December 1, 1526, Frederik I authorized in a "protectorate" for Jørgen Sadolin his school for "young people" who were able to "buy their food" insofar as they could not afford university studies; he and they were to enjoy the privileges of the city and be tax-free. In addition to preaching and teaching, Jørgen Sadolin worked for the movement through translations of Reformation scriptures; he thus published in 1529?30 three writings by Luther and two by J. Bugenhagen. Of these, only the translation of Bugenhagen's guide for priests in sick communion is preserved in transcript (printed in Writings from the Reformation period I, 1970).Jørgen Sadolin must also have been active as a hymn poet and publisher, but only one hymn can certainly be attributed to him.
