Who were the Nicolaitans, and what did their doctrine consist of?

the Nicolaitans are not the ‘followers of Nicholas’; the name does not arise by appropriation of the name of a founder, their name obeys the practice they developed; the above can be clearly seen by the way the message to the church of Ephesus is written, in it is described that Jesus abhors the ‘deeds’ of the Nicolaitans (τα εργα των νικολαιτων).
