Character Analysis The Minister

A wandering Norwegian minister, who is apparently a Calvinist, he is never identified by name. Rölvaag depicts him as a rather complex character, who on one hand is a fundamentalist out to save souls, and on the other a very human and sympathetic character. His understanding of Beret's problem, and of the deep sorrow this brings to Per Hansa, is a very touching thing. The minister is a real man of God, in the best sense of the word.
