Bagger, Hans Olesan
Bagger, Hans Olesan a Danish theologian, born at Lund in 1646, became bishop of Zealand in 1675, and died at Copenhagen in 1693. He is the author of the Danish Church-Ritual, which was introduced in 1686, and of a revised altar-book, both of which are still in use in the Danish Church. Being consulted by the Danish government as to whether the interest of the Lutheran Church allowed the admission to Denmark of the French Calvinists, who had been expelled by Louis XIV, he answered in the negative, because such an admission "would expose the souls of the Lutherans to temptation and to the risk of everlasting damnation." — Pierer, Universal-Lexikon, s.v.
