    • Jørgen Jensen Calodin, c.1499-1559, Biskop, was born in Viborg, which is why he sometimes wrote Vibergius, while the name Sadolinus was not used by himself, but seems to have been made by his ... Son With regard to the Family, who descended from Mors, in older joints had borne the name Saddlemaker. His father's name was Jens Christensen, his mother Marine Nielsdatter. The father must have been Vicarius at Viborg Cathedral and was, it seems, later Kannik at the same place. According to the circumstances of the time, the parents could thus hardly have been married, which S 'ecclesiastical opponent Poul Helgesen later did to the son's crime.

      Sadolin var formentlig uægte søn af en præst i Viborg. Navnet Sadolin (latinisering af sadelmager) brugtes af faderen, men ikke af Jørgen Jensen selv, som selv kaldte sig Jørgen Jensen Vibergius efter sin fødeby, Viborg. På latin hed han Johannes Georgius Vibergius.

      Han gik i skole i Århus og studerede i Wittenberg. Da han dukkede op i Viborg i 1525 som Hans Tausens medarbejder, havde han universitetsgraden magister. (Se afskrift nedenfor)

      Fra Wikipedia, den frie encyklopædi
      Jørgen Jensen Sadolin (born about 1499 in Viborg , died 19 December 1559 in Odense ) was a Danish clergyman and reformer , father of Hans Jørgensen Sadolin .
      Sadolin was probably the illegitimate son of a priest in Viborg . The name Sadolin (Latinization of saddlemaker ) was used by the father, but not by Jørgen Jensen himself, who called himself Jørgen Jensen Vibergius after his hometown, Viborg. In Latin his name was Johannes Georgius Vibergius.

      He went to school in Aarhus and studied in Wittenberg. When he appeared in Viborg in 1525 as Hans Tausen's employee, he had a master's degree . (See transcript below)

      In connection with the spread of the Reformation ideas in Viborg, Jørgen Jensen Sadolin received King Frederik I´s permission to establish a seminary in the city, and there «read and read let, what may be useful, for young Persons who are able to buy their food, but not for the persons who formed and wanted to be in universities ». The permit was granted on December 2, 1526. [1]

      In addition to the usual civil rights, he was granted freedom from royal taxes and "city burdens in all ways."

      When the Reformation was completed in Viborg in 1529 , Sadolin was ordained by Hans Tausen as a priest at Sortebrødre Church , which became the parish church for the southern part of the city.

      In addition to preaching and teaching, the JJS worked for the movement through translations of Reformation scriptures.

      Thus, in 1529-30, he published three writings by Luther: on the sacrament, patriarchy and marriage, and one from Bugenhagen: "A Divine Exhortation for Simple Parish Priests to Tell Sick People"

      At the Lord's Day in Copenhagen on July 2, 1530 , he and Hans Tausen successfully defended the Lutheran doctrine.

      On November 18, 1530, Sadolin published a historical account of the Lord's Day which contained the 27 articles of the Catholic bishops as well as the evangelical responses thereto.

      From Viborg he came to Odense in 1532 and in 1536 to Copenhagen, where he was a preacher at Our Lady's Church . In the period from 1532 to 1537 , he published several translations of key Reformed writings, including Luther's Catechism and the Augsburg Confession .

      With Bishop Knud Gyldenstierne's power of attorney in hand, Sadolin immediately took the initiative to convene a Funen national meeting in Odense in May 1532. At this national meeting, the assembled priests were admonished to use Luther's little catechism in a Danish edition and an introduction to Luther's teaching and message on to use the material in their daily work. In this way, Jørgen Jensen Sadolin had in effect introduced a Lutheran church system on Funen.

      Holy Trinity Day 1537, a number of selected "learned men and preachers" gathered in Odense (from Copenhagen came Hans Tausen and Jørgen Jensen Sadolin) to prepare the first Draft of a Church Ordinance . In the Spring of 1537 it was finished and sent to Luther at Wittenberg. With his general approval, it returned, after which it was completed by Bugenhagen , who had now received Permission to travel to Denmark. He arrived in Copenhagen on 5 July. The further elaboration of the Ordinances was soon completed. As early as August, it was presented to the National Council at a Lord's Day in Copenhagen, approved and issued on 2 September 1537.

      On September 2, 1537, he was married to the superintendent (now called bishop ) in Odense by Luther's close associate theologian Johannes Bugenhagen . Jørgen Jensen Sadolin thus became one of Denmark's first Lutheran-Evangelical superintendents, appointed five years earlier than Hans Tausen .

      He put a lot of energy into the preparation of the new church system, the Church Ordinance , and into its implementation in the Diocese of Funen . In relation to the old faith, his attitude was firm, but at the same time characterized by moderation and tolerance. He therefore did not avoid being accused of being too Catholic. He managed to give the funeral speech for King Christian III the same year that he himself died.

      Sadolinsgade in Odense is named after him.

      Sadolin was married twice:

      1. (c. 1527) with Marine Ibsdatter Hegelund from Skive;

      2. (1547) with Elsebeth Lauridsdatter from Roskilde, who survived him for many years and died in 1588.

      In the two marriages he had 16 children.

      Jørgen Jensen Sadolin is buried in Graabrødre Church, Odense

      His tombstone now stands in St. Knud's Church.

      Copy below from "Historiske Aarbøger til Oplysning og Vejledning i Nordens, særdeles Danmarks Historie" First part. published by C Molbech 1845:

      Magistor Jorgen Jensen Sadolin, born 1499 in Viborg, why he wrote in Latin Georgius Johannis Vibergius.

      He went to School in Aarhuus under the famous Rector Mort. Borup, and then studied at Wittenberg, where he was won by Luther, Melanchthon, and the other Reformers for evangelical doctrine.

      After his return in 1525 he was first his brother-in-law Hans Tausen's faithful helper in spreading the Reformation in his hometown, at whose school he was employed as rector, and where he was consecrated by Tausen before his departure from Viborg in 1529; since then he preached in Odense, where he was called by Bishop Knud Gyldenstierne.

      Here, in 1532, he successfully defended the evangelical doctrine in a disputation, which was held in the presence of the bishop with Hans Vicarius Nicolaus Paulinus, and translated p.

      For a short time, Sadolin was the first evangelical pastor at the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen.

      At the introduction of the Reformation, he was appointed successor of Gyldenstiernes as the first evangelical bishop in Odense, and also the other new bishops consecrated by Bugenhagen 2 Sept. 1537

      As bishop he acted strongly against the monastic order, and on the other hand also (1551-1552) had to endure a struggle against two of his diocesan priests, Christoffer Mikkelsen and Laurids Eliesen , who were hailed in anabaptist delusions.

      He attended the 4 National Synods held under the Government of King Christian III to arrange the Church; and just as he on the whole showed great zeal in the conduct of his office, so he also took careful care to improve the position of the clergymen subordinate to him.

      Bishop Sadolin died Dec. 19. 1559. From his epitaph it is known that he was twice married; among his sons was the most well-known Hans Sadolin, at that time a great Latin poet, who was therefore ennobled by King Frederik II, but later deposed from his priestly vocation in Thoreby on Lolland, presumably lewd.

      issue is often stated as December 1, 1526, but in the letter - which is known only fragmentarily - the date is stated as the second day after St. Andrew's Day, ie. the second day after 30 November, which gives the date 2 December 1526.
