Colladoin, Nicolas a Swiss Protestant theologian of French origin lived in the latter part of the 16th century. He left Bourges, where he was minister, retired to Geneva, and became, in 1564, rector of the academy of that place. Two years later he succeeded Calvin as professor of theology. The boldness of his preaching brought him into difficulty with. the sovereign council of Geneva, and he retired to Lausanne, where he taught belles-lettres. He translated into French Beza's work, De Haereticis Gladio Puniendis (1560); and wrote Methodus Facillina ad Explicationem Apocalypseos Johannis (Morges, 1591): — Jesus Nazarenus, ex Matthaeo, chapter 2, 5:32 (Lausanne, 1586).
