Dagfinn Hauge in 1964

Dagfinn Hauge (14 July 1908 – 14 March 2007) was a Norwegian writer and Lutheran Bishop in the Church of Norway.

Hauge was known for his work during World War II, when in 1941 he was asked to serve at the prison at Akershus Fortress in Oslo. He worked at Akershus for the duration of the war, and ministered to a number of prisoners who were sentenced to death during the German occupation of Norway. After the end of World War II and of the German occupation, Hauge wrote a book in which he described his experiences ministering to condemned prisoners (Slik dør menn; 1946).[1]

Hauge was briefly a member of Oslo City Council. He was a board member of the Luther Foundation (1945–1961) and chairman of the board of Deaconess House in Oslo (1946–1960). Hauge was also secretary general of the Norwegian Christian youth league (1948–1954). He served as editor of Luthersk Kirketidende, published by Luther Foundation (1954–1962). Hauge was a minister at Vestre Aker in Oslo from 1959 to 1962. He then served as the bishop of the Diocese of Tunsberg from 1962 to 1978.[2][3]
