Kristian Osvald Viderø (May 27, 1906, Skálavík – April 8, 1991, Copenhagen) was a Faroese clergyman, poet and Bible translator. After theological studies in Denmark, he oversaw the completion of a translation of the Old Testament into the Faroese language, which Jákup Dahl had worked on until his death in 1944. He was the parish priest of Hattarvík from 1965 to 1969. In 1985 he won the Faroese Literature Prize for his works. Viderø was commemorated on a Faroese postage stamp in a series on Faroese Bible translators in June 2007.
