{{Unreferenced|date=December 2009}} The '''Collège de Montaigu''' was one of the constituent [[college]]s of the Faculty of Arts of the [[University of Paris]]. The college, originally called the '''Collège des Aicelins''', was founded in 1314 by [[Giles Aicelin]], the [[Archbishop of Rouen]]. It changed its name after it had been restored by his relative [[Pierre Aicelin de Montaigu]], the [[Bishop of Nevers and Laon]]. In 1483 [[Jan Standonck]] became Master of the College and made it prosper. Under the his leadership and that of his disciple [[Noël Béda]], Montaigu was one of the leading theological colleges of Paris. Students at the college included [[Erasmus|Erasmus of Rotterdam]], [[John Calvin]], and [[Ignatius of Loyola]] (before moving to [[Collège Sainte-Barbe|Collège de Sainte-Barbe]]). Other notable students were the influential portuguese teacher and diplomat [[Diogo de Gouveia]] and philosopher [[John Mair]] (who went on to teach [[theology]] there) and [[John Knox]], the Scottish reformer. ==Erasmus's memories of the College== In his ''Colloquies'' [[Erasmus]] left a memoire of his time at the College under [[Jan Standonck|Standonck]]. Erasmus was a privileged paying student, but his memories were not pleasant. {{Coord missing|France}} {{DEFAULTSORT:College De Montaigu}}
