      Claus Pavels.

      Claus Pavels (8 January 1769 - 16 February 1822) was a Norwegian priest and diarist. His diaries from 1812-1822[1] are an important source for cultural and biographical history.[2]

      He was born in Vanse.[3] His father, a priest at Lista, died four months before Pavel's birth, and the boy grew up at his uncle's farm on Lista.[4] He graduated from Christanssand school in 1785. He was a student in Copenhagen and member of The Norwegian Society there. He was a chaplain in Brevig from 1793 to 1796,[5] priest in Copenhagen from 1799, a vicar at Aker and a priest at the Akershus Fortress from 1805, and became bishop of the diocese of Bjørgvin in 1817.

      In 1799 he married Maren Fasland. The couple had two daughters. Their daughter Karen married Johan Lyder Brun, Sr.,[3] a grandson of Johan Nordahl Brun,[6] who preceded Pavels as bishop of Bjørgvin.[7] He was the grandfather of the author Claus Pavels Riis

      Pavels was hired as a chaplain in Brevig in Telemark county from 1793 to 1796.[8] He next was called to be the priest in Hirschholm in Denmark from 1796 until 1799. From 1799 to 1805 he was a chaplain for the Nikolai parish in Copenhagen. In 1805, Pavels was given a new job in the Norwegian capital of Christiania. He was called to be the vicar of the parish of Aker as well as the priest serving Akershus Fortress. He served in that post until 1817 when he was named the Bishop of the Diocese of Bjørgvin. He remained at this post until his death on 16 February 1822.

      Pavels was host of the ceremony when the first Norwegian university, the Royal Frederick University of Christiania, was founded in 1811.[4] The ceremony took place at Akershus Fortress 11 November 1811, with music, military parades, bell ringing and guns salute, and people gathering in the Fortress Church.[4]

      Pavels was also present at the first defence of a doctorate thesis in Norway, at the University 18 June 1817, when Frederik Holst defended his thesis, "Morbus, quem Radesyge vocant, quinam sit, quanamque ratione e Scandinavia tollendus".[1][8] Pavel's diary contains a detailed report from the ceremonious event. There were 13 opponents, and the language used was Latin. The thesis was not translated into Norwegian until 188 years later, and the book from 2005 contains also Pavel's diary comments.[8]
      [edit] Politics in 1814

      From his position at Akershus Fortress, Pavels followed closely the political turbulence in 1814, with the Treaty of Kiel, the gathering of the Constituent Assembly at Eidsvoll, the clash between Sweden and Norway, and the subsequent Union between Sweden and Norway. He wrote detailed reports from this period in his diaries.[1]

      Pavels, Claus, a Norwegian prelate, was born Aug. 1, 1769. in Vaudco parish, near Christiansand, in Norway. He graduated with the highest honors at the gymnasium in Christiansand and at the University of Copenhagen. From 1799 to 1805 he preached in Copenhagen, but was then called to Christiania, Norway, where he remained until 1817. From 1817 until he died, in 182*2, he was bishop of Bergen. He enjoyed a great reputation as a pulpit orator, and published a number of sermons and religious treatises. He also wrote poetry, and kept a diary, in which he recorded all the more important events of his time. His grandson, C. P. Rus, has published two of his writings; the one, Hiskop Claus Pavels Autobiographi (Christiania, 1866); the other, Claus Pavels Dayboys Opteynelser (ibid. 186467). (R.B.A.)
