From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nicolaus Olai Bothniensis (dead 18 May 1600) was Archbishop of Uppsala in the Church of Sweden 1599-1600. He was appointed in place of Abraham Angermannus who had been put in prison, but before getting inducted he died of a sickness, about 50 years old.

In his younger days he had been a student at the University of Rostock and had made extensive travels through Europe.

Like Angermannus, Bothniensis had for a while been imprisoned because of his resistance to King John III of Sweden's non-Lutheran liturgy, but he had been finally released in the fall of 1592 after a total time of 1,5 years.

He became dean in Uppsala and the first professor of theology at the university there in 1593. Bothiensis was described as a fine man of high moral standards.
