|Died||3 January 1560|
Peder Palladius (1503–1560) was a Danish theologian, priest, bishop and Protestant reformer.
Born in Ribe, Palladius later studied in Wittenberg. After the Protestant Reformation came to Denmark in 1537, Palladius became the first evangelical Lutheran superintendent (bishop). He actively advocated the removal of Catholic images and rituals, many of which he considered superstitious and idolatrous.
