Synagogues can be found in Stockholm (which has 2 Orthodox (Orthodox Judaism) and 1 Conservative (Conservative Judaism) temple), Göteborg (an Orthodox and a Conservative synagogue), Malmö (an Orthodox synagogue) and in Norrköping (although the Norrköping community is too small to perform regular services). '''Bror Hjorths Hus''', (''Bror Hjorth's House'') is a museum of the artist Bror Hjorth (1894–1968), located in Uppsala, Sweden. The museum has a large collection of Hjorth's work. The house which was built in 1943 was for 25 years the home and studio of Bror Hjorth. It became a museum in 1978. After finishing her degree, Frida attended the theater university in Malmö. This training was connected to a practical course at the city theater of Gothenburg. Thereafter Frida received several theater roles in Gothenburg, Stockholm, and Uppsala. She attained international fame with the leading role of Lena in Kay Pollak's Oscar (Academy Award) nominated film ''As It Is in Heaven''. In 2007 she was at the side of Walter Sittler and Inger Nilsson (''Pippi Longstocking'') in the Second German Television (ZDF) miniseries ''Der Kommissar und das Meer'' Like many mosasaurs, this genus has a complicated taxonomic history.

Hence, ''Clidastes sternbergii'' became ''Halisaurus sternbergii''.

traditional education

Åström was born in Uppsala, the son of John Åström, a lawyer, and his wife, Brita (née Kugelberg). His father died shortly before the Kreuger Crash in 1932. Biography Hermelin was born into an aristocratic family in Svanshals, Ödeshög Municipality, Östergötland County and had a traditional education, at the end of which he spent a couple of years at the Philosophical Faculty of the University of Uppsala, which he left without taking a degree. Already at this stage he seems to have developed a taste for alcohol, which later became an addiction, with drastic life-long consequences. After an unsuccessful attempt at farming on a family estate, he began a wandering life abroad. In 1883 he went to the United States and eked out a living as a teacher, a carpenter, and a soldier, before returning to Europe in 1885. In 1886 he traveled to England and joined the British (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland) army as a soldier in the Middlesex Regiment (under the name of Thomas Edward Hallan). He went with his regiment to India in the following year. However, his army career in India proved a failure. He was much troubled by disease, and by then his drinking had developed into full-blown alcoholism, possibly in combination with the use of narcotic drugs. Nevertheless, he spent time on language studies, obviously in preparation for one of the language examinations that formed part of the British administrative system in India. He states that he learnt Hindustani (Hindustani language) (i.e., Urdu) and also started to learn Persian (Persian language). There is, however, no record showing that he had passed any examination in these subjects. In later years he occasionally referred to his Indian "Monshi," and it is also likely that he had his first encounters with Sufism at that time. In April 1893 he was finally discharged from the army "with ignominy," i.e., for disciplinary reasons. After that he became an even more intrepid traveler, going to England and America (Americas) (including Jamaica) and then back to Sweden, where he again tried his hand at farming. His aristocratic family found his alcoholism and disorderly life unacceptable and had him declared officially unfit to manage his life, and in 1897 he was placed under the care of a guardian. Regardless of this injunction, he went abroad again and lived in Australia and, possibly, America, earning a living through sundry occupations. He turned up in London in the autumn of 1907 and returned to Sweden in early 1908. In the autumn of the same year he was taken into a lunatic asylum in Stockholm, and in February 1909 he was moved to the asylum of St. Lars in Lund, where he spent the rest of his life. He never married. Writing works There is no concrete evidence of any literary production from his years of travel, but he turned to reading and writing when he was confined to the asylum in Lund. He began as a conservative and patriotic writer of verses, commentaries, and translations in local daily newspapers; but through his reading of, among others, the English (England) socialist Robert Blatchford, he gradually adopted a more liberal and even radical attitude. Soon he was attracted by mysticism, first of all by Emanuel Swedenborg, whose works he started to translate. Then he turned to the Christian quietism and mysticism of Jakob Böhme, who remained one of his main inspirations. In this context he resumed his Persian (Persian language) studies and also started to learn Hebrew. Against all odds, with repeated lapses into alcoholism and deep depressions, he began a new career as an author and translator. His first publication (Uppsala, 1913) was a Swedish (Swedish language) translation of an English (English language) work by Alexander Whyte on Jakob Böhme. In 1918 two volumes of translations from works by Böhme appeared in print, and the same year saw his first publication of a Swedish (Swedish language) translation from Persian, the ''Bustan'' of Sa'di (Saadi (poet)), possibly first encountered by him when he was preparing for his Persian examination in India some thirty years earlier. It was the first in a long series of Persian (Persian language) translations of classical Persian literature by his hand. In 1594, she followed her spouse to Sweden, where she was crowned as the Queen of Sweden in Uppsala the 19 February. The Poles demanded that she leave her daughter behind her as security in Poland during their stay in Sweden, and she was afraid that the Swedes would demand the same when she returned to Poland, if she gave birth during her stay in Sweden. 19 April 1594, she gave birth to a daughter, whose baptism was elaborately celebrated at the Swedish court, but the child died soon after. During her stay in Sweden, she became involved in a conflict with Dowager Queen Gunilla Bielke. She was regarded as quite polite but distant and depressive during her stay. She did not speak Swedish, and she regarded the Swedish people as heretic (Heresy)s and rebels and only showed herself in public when she was forced to. At her departure from Sweden in July 1594, she was granted Linköping, Söderköping and Stegeborg on the condition that she respect the Protestant belief within these feifs. One high-status variety (variety (linguistics)) of Swedish, that of the capital region of Stockholm–Uppsala, sometimes ambiguously designated as ''rikssvenska'', belongs to ''Svealand Swedish'', though WikiPedia:Uppsala Dmoz:Regional Europe Sweden Uppsala_County Localities Uppsala Commons:Category:Uppsala


conducting research

and conducting research in the area of the cultural history and archaeology of the county, including the city of Uppsala (parts of the historical province of Uppland, from which the museum takes its name, belong to Stockholm County). The permanent exhibition covers subjects such as the history of the city, of Uppsala Cathedral, and of student life at Uppsala University. The Rebel Movement only lasted for a couple of months, but during this time, its members rapidly broke off all contact with the rest of society, including their families. The group of approximately 100 members was divided into smaller cells, living isolated in 7 apartments in Stockholm and one apartment in Uppsala, where they were to study the works of Mao and prepare for the coming ''World Revolution''. Only the leadership, the ''Central Committee'', with Sarrión as chairman, knew were the different cells were located. thumb Johann Christian Friedrich Hæffner. (File:Johann Christian Friedrich Haeffner.png) '''Johann Christian Friedrich Hæffner''' (2 March 1759 in Oberschönau – 28 May 1833 in Uppsala) was a German (Germany)-born Swedish (Sweden) composer. Since king Gustaf IV Adolf closed the Royal Opera (and its orchestra) in 1807, he moved to Uppsala, where he 1808 was appointed Director musices of the university (Uppsala University) and simultaneously was employed as organist of the cathedral (Uppsala Cathedral). In Uppsala he organized the ''studentsång'' ("Student singing") - four-voice male choir singing. This practice rapidly spread to the other Nordic universities and is still today a coveted tradition, not only among university students, but for the last century also in many (most ?) male choirs all over Sweden. Hæffner's passion and work for this has rendered him the name ''Studentsångens fader'' ("Father of 'studentsång'). The starting point of this tradition is usually set to a performance of ''Under Svea banér'' (words by P.D.A. Atterbom, music by Hæffner) by a student choir celebrating the war hero ''Klingspor'' on 24 October 1808. He was born in Östergötland and was at one time chairman of the Moderate Youth League district there. He studied law in Uppsala 1968–71. In 1971, he was elected national chairman of the Moderate Youth League and served until 1976, when he was elected to the Riksdag (Parliament of Sweden) for Östergötland.

cultural historical

Meyer (1985, 91) and Robinson (2009, xix). Meyer translates the title as ''Cultural-Historical Studies''. The collection includes Strindberg's assessment of Impressionism. Ludvig Josephson (the new artistic director of Stockholm's New Theatre (Swedish Theatre (Stockholm))) agreed to stage ''Master Olof'', eventually opting for the prose version—the five-hour-long production opened on 30 December 1881 under the direction of August Lindberg to favourable reviews. Meyer (1985, 89, 95) and Robinson (2009, xix). Lane gives the length of the production as six hours. The name of the theatre in Swedish is Nya Teatern. Two former theatres of Stockholm have used this name (one is also known as the Swedish Theatre (Swedish Theatre (Stockholm)), which burnt-down in 1925, while the other, Mindre teatern, was demolished in 1908). August Lindberg took over from Edvard Stjernström, who founded the one known as the Swedish Theatre; see Lane (1998, 1040) and Meyer (1985, 89). While this production of ''Master Olaf'' was his breakthrough in the theatre, Strindberg's five-act fairy-tale (Fairy tale) play ''Lucky Peter's Journey'', which opened on 22 December 1883, brought him his first significant success, although he dismissed it as a potboiler. Lane (1998, 1040), Meyer (1985, 96), and Robinson (2009, xix). In March 1882 he wrote in a letter to Josephson: "My interest in the theatre, I must frankly state, has but one focus and one goal—my wife's career as an actress"; Josephson duly cast her in two roles the following season. Meyer (1985, 96-97). DATE OF DEATH September 17, 1999 PLACE OF DEATH Uppsala, Sweden Biography Scheele was born in Stralsund, Western Pomerania, Germany (at the time under Swedish rule). Instead of becoming a merchant like his father, Scheele decided to become a pharmacist. His career as a pharmacist began with his apprenticeship at an apothecary in Gothenburg when he was only fourteen years old. He retained this position for eight years before becoming an apothecary's clerk in Malmö. Then Scheele worked as a pharmacist in Stockholm, from 1770-1775 in Uppsala, and later in Köping (Köping, Sweden). Dextran-based products were to play a significant role in the further expansion of Pharmacia. In 1951, the company moved to Uppsala, Sweden, to get closer to the scientists with whom they cooperated, and Ingelman became its head of research. In 1959, Pharmacia pioneered gel filtration with its Sephadex products. These were also based on dextran and discoveries in Tiselius' department, this time by Jerker Porath and Per Flodin. In 1967 Pharmacia Fine Chemicals was established in Uppsala. In 1986 Pharmacia Fine Chemicals acquired LKB-produkter AB and changed name to Pharmacia Biotech. Pharmacia Biotech expanded there role in the 'biotech revolution' through its acquisition of PL Laboratories from Pabst Brewery offering a line of recombinant DNA specialty research chemicals. Sold to private interests in the 1990s, Pharmacia was first merged with "Kabi Vitrum" to form Kabi Pharmacia with headquarters in Uppsala. Kabi was later excluded. Then the company merged with the American (United States) pharmaceutical company Upjohn in 1995 and moved its headquarters to London. Born in Uppsala, she first came to public notice in the 1930s, and was one of the main driving forces in the creation of the Swedish welfare state.

asserts that the æsir (Áss) settled in what is now Sweden and built various temples. Snorri writes that Odin settled in Lake Logrin (Mälaren), "at a place which formerly was called Sigtúnir (Fornsigtuna). There he erected a large temple and made sacrifices according to the custom of the Æsir. He took possession of the land as far as he called it Sigtúnir. He gave dwelling places to the temple priests." Further, Snorri writes that, after this, Njörðr dwelt in Nóatún
