Book of Saints – Isidore of Seville

[Saint Isidore of Seville]Article

(Saint) Bishop (April 4) Doctor of the Church. (7th century) Born of a noble family of Carthagena in Spain, Saint Isidore, with his brothers, Leander and Fulgentius, and his sister, Florentia, have all become canonised Saints. Saint Isidore succeeded Saint Leander as Bishop of Seville in A.D. 600; presided over several Synods, and thoroughly reorganised the Spanish Church, then just emerging victorious from its struggle with Arianism. He was versed in all the science of his age; and his extant works are voluminous and of great value, rangine in their subject-matter from Grammar to History, Theology and Ascetics. He died A.D. 636, his last act having been the distributing of all his goods and moneys among the poor.
