In December 1944 Eivind Josef Berggrav ( 1884- 1959), the Norwegian Lutheran Bishop of Oslo, was featured on the cover of TIME magazine, becoming one of the relatively few protestant religious figures to have been thus honored (others featured before 1960 include Harry Emerson Fosdick ( 1925), Henry Sloan Coffin ( 1926), Martin Niemöller ( 1940), Reinhold Niebuhr ( 1948), Henry Knox Sherrill ( 1951), Otto Dibelius ( 1953), Henry P. Van Dusen ( 1954), Billy Graham ( 1954), Franklin Clark Fry ( 1958), and Paul Tillich ( 1959)). Berggrav is celebrated for his leadership in the Norwegian Christian resistance to the Nazi occupation. Berggrav did not initially publicly oppose the occupation, appealing to Norwegian Christians to "refrain from any interference" and to refuse to "mix themselves up in the war by sabotage or in any other way." However, as it became increasingly clear that the occupying powers would not honor their promise to allow Norwegians freedom of religion and the preservation of their structures of government, Berggrav joined in forming the Christian Council for Joint Deliberation, and when the church was ordered to alter its liturgical practices, Bishop Berggrav refused to comply. On April 9, 1942, Berggrav was arrested. He (along with four other members of the Christian Council) was initially imprisoned in the Grini concentration camp, but was later moved to an isolated location where he was placed in solitary confinement, allowed to see no one but his Nazi guards. ...more on Wikipedia about "Eivind Berggrav"
