Peder Olivarius Bugge was born at Holt in Nedenes county, Norway. He was the son of the parish priest Søren Bugge (1721–94) and Gidsken Edvardine Røring (1724–93). After four years of schooling in Bergen, he attended Kristiansand Cathedral School. He graduated from the University of Copenhagen (cand.theol. 1786, magister 1787).
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 1815-1816. As Bishop of Trondhjem, Bugge gave the sermon at the coronation of the new King Karl Johan on 7 September 1818 at the Nidaros Cathedral.
Bugge published a missionary magazine, Efterretninger om Evangelii Fremgang i alle Verdens-Dele (1821–22). He later showed sympathy for the Pietism movement and defended Haugean lay preachers. In later years, Bugge was bothered by impaired health. His resignation was accepted at the bishops' assembly in 1842.
In 1787, Bugge was married to Cathrine Magdalene Koch (1787–1849). He died in 1849 at Trondheim. He was the father of Frederik Moltke Bugge (1806-1853), rector at Trondheim Cathedral School and Søren Bruun Bugge (1798-1886), rector of Christiania Cathedral School. His grandchildren included Johannes Christian Piene and Wilhelm Bugge.
