From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Olov Lambatunga was archbishop of Uppsala, Sweden, 1198-1206.

Little is known about Olov. A couple of papal letters exist: In 1200, the pope declared that Catholic Church estates were free from government taxes and that clerics should not be subjected to the courts and judges of the government, but by bishops and prelates, as a step to separate the worldly and spiritual matters.

In the second letter, the pope demands Olov to dismiss two bishops that Olov's predecessor Petrus had appointed because they lacked proper heredity.

There is also a letter from Olov to the pope, sent after Uppsala burnt in 1204. Olov asked the Pope for a new pallium, because his old had burnt. The request was granted.
