Peder Olivarius Bugge (2 December 1764 – 6 December 1849) was a Norwegian priest and politician. He was the bishop of the Diocese of Nidaros from 1804 until 1842. He was born in Holt, Norway in 1764 and died in 1849 in Trondheim, Norway.[1]

Peder Olivarius Bugge was the son of the parish priest Søren Bugge. After taking his exams in Copenhagen, he was a priest in various parishes in Sjælland, Jylland, and Lista before being appointed to the post of bishop of the Diocese of Nidaros when he was only 40 years old in 1804.[2]

Bugge took part at the Norwegian Constituent Assembly at Eidsvoll in 1814 where a constitution was written. He was then elected as the first representative to the new Parliament from Trondheim in 1815. As Bishop of Nidaros, Bugge gave the sermon at the coronation of the new King Karl Johan on 7 September 1818 at the Nidaros Cathedral.[1]

Bugge was the father of teacher Frederik Moltke Bugge and priest Søren Bruun Bugge. He was also the grandfather to Johannes Christian Piene.[3][4]
