Peterseni kivipink Toomemäe nõlval

Professorite tee ääres seisev kivipink on mälestusmärk ühele Tartu populaarsele ja koloriitsele isikule Carl Petersenile (1775–1822).

Petersen oli ülikooli raamatukogu ja tsensuurikomitee sekretär, saksa keele lektor ja poeet. Ta olevat olnud väga paks mees ning ametikohustuste tõttu tuli tal sageli liikuda ülikooli peahoone ja raamatukogu vahel. Kuna ta ei jaksanud Toomele ühe hooga ronida, lasi ta poolele teele panna pingi. Algul oli pink puust, aga ikka oli neid, kes tahtsid pingi kallal oma jõudu näidata, ja Petersen tüdines pinkide sagedasest vahetamisest. Puupingi asemele pandi kivipink ja see on vastu pidanud tänapäevani.

1824. aastal kuulutati välja Carl Peterseni kogutud teoste ettetellimine, aga suurejoonelisest ettevõtmisest ei saanud asja. Alles 1846. aastal ilmus trükist kirjaniku valikkogu „Karl Petersen’s poetischer Nachlass“, mille vähesed eksemplarid ei olnudki määratud müügile jõudma. Kunagise tsensuurikomisjoni sekretäri tekstides oli nimelt liiga palju ebatsensuurseid väljendeid.

Petersen’s stone bench on the slope of Toome Hill

The stone bench at the so-called professors’ alley is a monument to Carl Petersen (1775–1822), a popular and colourful person of Tartu.

Peterson was the secretary of the university library and the censorship committee, lecturer of German and a poet. He is said to have been a very fat man and because of his duties he often had to walk from the university’s main building to the library and back. As he was unable to take the uphill walk in one go, he had a bench placed halfway on the slope. It was a wooden bench at first, but after it had got vandalised on several occasions, Peterson got tired of having to replace the bench so often. The wooden bench was replaced by a stone bench, which remains there to this day.

In 1824, a subscription for the collected works of Carl Petersen was announced, but the ambitious undertaking never materialised. Only in 1846, a selection of his works  “Karl Petersen’s poetischer Nachlass” was printed but the few copies were not meant for sales. Namely, the texts of the former secretary of the censorship committee included too much inappropriate language.
