Coler, Johann Jakob
Coler, Johann Jakob a German theologian, was born at Zurich inn the 16th century. He was one of the pupils of Theodore Beza, and wrote An Anima Rationalis sit ex Traduce (Zurich, 1586). The success of this little treatise was very great, and Rodolphe Goclenius printed it a second time in his collection of writings upon the origin and nature of the soul, De Hominis Perfectione (Marburg, 1694). We are also indebted to Coler for Praefatio in Epistolas Hutteni, with a collection of letters from Hutten (Nuremberg, 1604). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. GeCnerale, s.v.
