Abstract: The theorem about primitive divisors in algebraic number fields is generalized in the following manner. Let *A, B* be algebraic integers, , *A/B* not a root of unity, and a primitive root of unity of order *k*. For all sufficiently large *n*, the number has a prime ideal factor that does not divide for arbitrary and .
