Description of this motif: One can find several priests in Andersen's tales, but they seldomly play important roles. "A Story" (1851) stars a priest, though.

Example :

The tale has not been translated (by Hersholt) and is therefore quoted in Danish. Further information and links.

Kongen havde befalet, at anlćgge Hof sorg, og i alle Kirkerne bad Prćsterne for den nye Beiler.

Comment on this quote: The priests pray for Johannes, who is going to ask the by evil possessed princess to marry him.
