      --------------------



      Anders har taget efternavnet Vedel efter sin fødeby Vejle



      --------------------



      Anders Sørensen Vedel was a priest and historian born in Vejle (from which the Vedel name comes), Denmark. He translated the Gesta Danorum by Saxo Grammaticus into Danish 1575.



      As a young man he was the tutor of the astronomer Tycho Brahe on the latter's Grand Tour in Europe becoming the latter's friend.



      From 1584 Vedel was the official Danish historiographer whose duty was writing the long-expected Latin continuation of Saxo’s work but he overreached himself in his attempt of doing so. He planned an ambitious work in 22 books dealing with both language and topography as well as with history. However other tasks, lack of help from secretaries, his own slowness and carefulness - and perhaps also a general underestimation of the demands of this work – led to very modest results and 1594 the task was taken away from him. Much of what he had written here was lost at the fire of Copenhagen 1728.


      One spin-off from this task however survived namely his edition of a hundred Danish ballads (1591) which became a solid foundation of later knowledge of the elder Danish literary tradition. His own re-creation of some of the ballads shows his ability as a poet.


      Tycho Brahe, born in 1546, was the eldest son of a noble Danish family, and as such appeared destined for the natural aristocratic occupations of hunting and warfare. However, he had an uncle Joergen, a country squire and vice-admiral, who was more educated, and childless. Tycho's father had agreed with the uncle before Tycho was born that if Tycho was a boy, the uncle could adopt and raise him. He changed his mind and reneged. Then, when a younger brother was born, the uncle kidnapped Tycho. The father threatened to murder the uncle, but eventually calmed down, since Tycho stood to inherit a large estate from the uncle.


      When Tycho was seven, his uncle insisted that he begin studying Latin. His parents objected, but the uncle said this would help Tycho become a lawyer. At age thirteen, Tycho entered the University of Copenhagen to study law and philosophy. At this impressionable age, an event took place that changed his life. There was a partial eclipse of the sun. This had been predicted, and took place on schedule. It struck Tycho as "something divine that men should know the motions of the stars so accurately that they were able a long time beforehand to predict their places and relative positions". Perhaps this predictability was especially appealing to one whose personal life was evolving in rather an uncertain way. One of the advantages of being a rich kid was that he could immediately go out and buy a copy of Ptolemy's Almagest (in Latin) , and some sets of astronomical tables, which showed the positions of the planets at any given time. Ptolemy himself had made such tables, and they had been revised in Spain by a group of fifty astronomers in 1252, brought together by Alfonso X of Castile. These were called the Alfonsine tables. Tycho also bought a recent set of tables based on Copernicus' theory.


      At age sixteen, the uncle sent Tycho to Leipzig, in Germany, to continue his study of law. He was accompanied by a tutor, the twenty year old Anders Vedel, who himself later became famous as Denmark's first great historian. However, Tycho was obsessed with astronomy. He bought books and instruments, which he hid from his tutor, and stayed up much of each night observing the stars. When he was seventeen, he observed a special event---Jupiter and Saturn passed very close to each other. (This was on August 17, 1563.) He found on checking the tables that the Alfonsine tables were off by a month in predicting this event, and the Copernicus tables off by several days. Tycho decided this was a pathetic performance by the astronomers, and much better tables could be constructed just by more accurate observation of the exact positions of the planets over an extended period of time. He decided that this was what he was going to do. Vedel realized Tycho was a hopeless case, and gave up trying to tutor him in law. The two remained good friends for life. Meanwhile, the uncle died of pneumonia after rescuing the king from drowning after the king had fallen off the bridge to his castle returning from a naval battle with the Swedes. When Tycho returned to Denmark, the rest of his family were quite unfriendly. They despised his stargazing, and blamed him for neglecting the law. He decided to return to Germany, and fell in with some rich amateur astronomers in Augsburg. He persuaded them that what was needed was accurate observation, and (as telescopes had not yet been invented) this meant rather large quadrants to get lines of sight on stars. They set up a large wooden quadrant, part of a circle with a nineteen foot radius, that took twenty men to set up. It was graduated in sixtieths of a degree. This was the beginning of Tycho's accurate observations.

      Vedel, Anders Sørensen. Historiker



      (1542-1616), magister og historiker. Anders Sørensen Vedel blev født den 9. november 1542 i Vejle. Faderen var købmand og rådmand Søren Sørensen, moderen Sidse Andersdatter, datter af Vejles borgmester Anders Bertelsen. Tilnavnet Vedel fik han efter sin fødeby. Efter sin skolegang i den lille latinskole i Vejle rejste Anders Sørensen Vedel i 1557 til Ribe Latinskole. I 1561 begyndte han på Københavns Universitet. Som 20-årig blev Anders Sørensen Vedel hovmester for den senere verdensberømte astronom Tycho Brahe, da denne studerede i Tyskland. Selv tog Vedel en magistergrad i Wittenberg i 1566. Det var en bred uddannelse - teologi, jura, matematik, filosofi, filologi, dialektik, fysik og historie.


      Anders Sørensen Vedel blev især kendt for sine mange bogudgivelser. Mest berømt var hans oversættelse af Saxo fra 1575. I 1578 fik han af regeringen til opgave at skrive en ny Danmarkshistorie. Han nåede dog aldrig at blive færdig med dette arbejde. I 1594 greb regeringen ind og fratog ham opgaven. Han blev tvunget til at aflevere det meste af sit indsamlede materiale til efterfølgeren Niels Krag, for hvem det i øvrigt lykkedes. Blandt årsagerne til at det ikke lykkedes for Vedel at færdiggøre sin Danmarkshistorie var, at han var perfektionistisk og nægtede at modtage hjælp. Herudover var han travlt beskæftiget med andre ting som f.eks. ligaprædikener og hans berømte indsamling af danske middelalderlige folkeviser under titlen "Et hundrede danske viser".

      Anders Sørensen Vedel (9 November 1542 – 13 February 1616) was a Danish priest and historiographer. He translated the Gesta Danorum by Saxo Grammaticus into Danish in 1575, and published the influential "Hundredvisebogen" in 1591.


      Anders Sørensen was born in Vejle, from which place the Vedel name comes.14 years old he moved to study in Ribe, and after finishing his education he moved on to Copenhagen University in 1561. In 1562, he was the tutor of astronomer Tycho Brahe on Brahe's Grand Tour in Europe,forming a lasting bond of friendship with him.Vedel started studying at Wittenberg in 1565, which he finished in 1566, and was appointed priest at Copenhagen Castle in 1568. Vedel's historical knowledge was admired by leading politicians including Christoffer Valkendorf, Bjørn Andersen, Arild Huitfeldt Johan Friis and Peder Oxe, and he was seen as the right man to continue Christiern Pedersen's Danish language translation of the Latin chronicle Gesta Danorum by Saxo Grammaticus.


      He started the translation work in 1570, and the finished work "Den danske Krønicke" was published in 1575. The work was both a translation and rewriting of the original Latin phrases. While working on the translation, he was given the income of a canon at Ribe Cathedral in 1573. After pressure from Peder Oxe, Niels Kaas, and Jørgen Rosenkrantz, Vedel wrote a proposal for a Latin continuation of Saxo's work in 1578 which was finalized in 1581. He was relieved of his priesthood in Copenhagen, and moved to Ribe in 1581.


      He was appointed Royal historiographer in 1584 and received a prelature at Ribe to support himself, and undertook the task of continuing the Danish chronicle in that year. However, he overreached himself in his attempt to do so. He planned an ambitious work in twenty-two books dealing with both language and topography as well as with history. However other tasks, lack of help from secretaries, his own slowness and carefulness—and perhaps also a general underestimation of the demands of this work—led to very modest results. In 1594, after the death of chancellor Niels Kaas, the task was given to Niels Krag, under Vedel's protestations. He got a one-year reprieve, but could not produce satisfactory results, after which he turned his work over to Niels Krag. Much of what he had written was lost at the fire of Copenhagen in 1728.


      One spin-off from this task which survived was his "Hundredvisebogen" (1591) of a hundred Danish ballads which became a solid foundation of later knowledge of the elder Danish literary tradition. It was published with the support of Queen Sophie.[4] Vedel's own re-creation of some of the ballads shows his ability as a poet.

      I Norge er han mest kjent som opphavsmann til «Hundreviseboka» (Et hundrede udvalgte danske viser), der han nedskrev middelalderballader og andre viser som var kjent i folketradisjonen. Hundreviseboka kom ut i 1591, og er den første i sitt slag i Nord-Europa. Vedels visesamling har vært et viktig referanseverk for norsk balladeforskning.


      I perioden 1570-75 oversatte han Saxos Gesta Danorum fra latin til dansk. Som historiker var han i gang med å samle materiale til en en stor danmarkshistorie, og nådde 22 bind før han måtte oppgi arbeidet.
