What does BJORNSTJERNE BJORNSON mean?
- Björnstjerne Björnson
- Norwegian writer, born Quickne 8 Dec. 1832. His father was a Lutheran clergyman. Has done much to create a national literature for Norway. For his freethinking opinions he was obliged to leave his country and reside in Paris. Many of his tales have been translated into English. In 1882 Björnson published at Christiania, with a short introduction, a resumé of C. B. Waite’s History of the Christian Religion, under the title of Whence come the Miracles of the New Testament? This was the first attack upon dogmatic Christianity published in Norway, and created much discussion. The following year he published a translation of Colonel Ingersoll’s article in the North American Review upon the “Christian Religion,” with a long preface, in which he attacks the State Church and Monarchy. The translation was entitled Think for Yourself. The first edition rapidly sold out and a second one appeared. He has since, both in speech and writing, repeatedly avowed his Freethought, and has had several controversies with the clergy.
