History

Diocese of Othinia(Latin name of Odense) was founded in 988 the Diocese of Schleswig. In the 11th century, the archbishops of Hamburg-Bremen fought with the archbishops of Canterbury for the jurisdiction. Historically, the first bishop was Reginbert the Englishman(also Reginar). Since 1104, the diocese has belonged to the Diocese of Lund, which was then been suffragan of the Archbishopric of Hamburg-Bremen.

After the Reformation, the diocese was replaced to a Lutheran diocese.
