Peder Claussøn Friis 1545-1614


Peder Claussøn Friis (April 1, 1545 – October 15, 1614) was a Norwegianmarker author.

By his translations of the old sagas he rendered great service to the history of Norway; indeed, one saga is extant only in his translation. In his Description of Norway and Adjacent Islands is to be found historical material of value. His language is remarkably pure and his style is vigorous and artless.
