      Hans Thorvald Olrik (born 12 July 1862 in Copenhagen , died 12 June 1924 at the same place) was a Danish historian and schoolman, son of the artist Henrik Olrik , brother of Benedicte Olrik (married Brummer), Dagmar , Eyvind , Axel , Jørgen and Povl Olrik .

      Hans Olrik became a student in 1879 and cand.theol. in 1885 . Based on church history , he entered a thorough study of Denmark's history in the older Middle Ages , about which he has written Knud Lavard's Life and Deeds ( 1888 ), "Bishop Valdemar and the Danish Crown" in Yearbooks for Nordic Antiquity and History ( 1892 ) , "To enslydende danske Kongebreve fra 1230" trykt i samme tidskrift ( 1895 ), "Bidrag til Belysning af Valdemarssønnernes Tidsalder" i Historisk Tidsskrift( 1897 ), Absalon I-II ( 1908 - 1909 ), Abbot Vilhelm af Æbelholt ( 1912 ) and Ridderliv og Korstogskultur ( 1921 ). He has also translated Danske Helgeners Levned ( 1893 - 1894 ).

      His main work was King and Priesthood in the Danish Middle Ages in two volumes ( 1892 - 1895 ), whose first volume was the dissertation that Olrik became dr.phil. on, and was a critical and insightful account of the whole subject.

      From an early age, Olrik worked as a teacher and from 1891 was a member of the Commission for the School Teacher Exam . In 1893 the Ministry of Culture sent him abroad to study seminary teaching; in a travelogue from 1895 he wrote about Higher Seminars in France and Germany as well as Continuation Courses in Switzerland and Austria , and he also wrote a draft plan for a similar arrangement for Denmark . It was not implemented. In 1895, Olrik became headmaster of the Statens Lærerkursus , which under his leadership became a major part of the Danish teacher's education. From 1906 the course was calledStatens Lærerhøjskole .

      From 1897 Olrik was secretary of the Danish branch of the Letterstedtska association , and in 1911 - 1920 he was chairman of the Danish Historical Association . He became a member of the Royal Danish Society for the History of the Fatherland on 18 April 1904 .

      Olrik, who became titular professor in 1894 , knight of Dannebrog in 1901 and Dannebrogsmand in 1920 , married on 27 May 1887 to pianist Elisabeth Cathrine Bruun, daughter of adjustment master Ernst Bruun . After her death ( April 7, 1896 ), he married Dagmar Hansen on January 29, 1898 .
