Olaf, Engelbrechtson

Olaf, Engelbrechtson a noted Norwegian prelate of the Roman Catholic branch of the Church, flourished as archbishop of Trondhjem from 1523 to 1537. He was a zealous adherent to king Christian the First's party. He clung to the Roman Catholic faith to the last, but his endeavors to re-establish it in Norway proved unsuccessful. After having suffered imprisonment, and having been forced to pay a large sum of money as a ransom for his life, he was set free in 1532; but in 1537 he was compelled to leave the country. He died in exile in Brabant. See Petersen, Norges Sveriges og Danmariks Historie; Nordisk Conversations lexikon, s.v. (R. B. A.)
