Tiedemann Giese (June 1, 1480 - October 23, 1550) of the Patrician family Giese from Gdańsk became bishop of Chełmno, then bishop of Warmia. He was the brother of the famous Hanseatic trademan Georg Giese of Gdańsk.
Bishop Tiedemann Giese was the closest friend of the Polish administrator and churchman Nicolaus Copernicus, who lived in Warmia as well and after his death became known as astronomer. Copernicus willed his writings to Giese and left the Copernican library to the Warmia church administration.
