    St. Isidore of Seville. Pope Benedict XVI. Torn between devotion to study and contemplation, St. Isidore found his model in Christ. On Wednesday, 18 June [], at the General Audience in St. Peter's Square, the Holy Father commented on the seventh century Saint, Isidore of Seville, St. Leander's youngest brother and a contemporary and friend of St Gregory the Great. Isidore drew on pagan authors and church fathers (7), and makes references to a wide range of civilizations such as the Persians, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Amazons. While not every household may have owned a copy of Cicero or Lucretius’ works, they would have likely possessed a copy of Etymologiae, and thus have access to classical authors.

    Isidore, Bishop of Seville, compiled the Etymologies (also known as the Origins) in the late teens and twenties of the seventh century, and left it nearly complete at his death in In the form of an encyclopedia, it contains a compendium of much of the essential learning of the ancient Greco-Roman and early Christian worlds.   Their son, Isidore of Seville, became a saint, as did his brothers, St. Leander, bishop of Seville, and St. Fulgentius, who became bishop of Astigi, and his sister, Florentina, who became an abbess overseeing nearly 40 convents. Isidore, born in , was one of the youngest members of the family of high achievers.

    A Companion to Isidore of Seville presents nineteen chapters from leading international scholars on Isidore of Seville (d. ), the most prominent bishop of the Visigothic kingdom in Hispania in the seventh century and one of the most prolific authors of early medieval western Europe. Introductory studies establish the political, religious and familial contexts in which Isidore operated, his. This work is a complete English translation of the Latin Etymologies of Isidore, Bishop of Seville (c). Isidore compiled the work between c and the early s and it takes the form of an encyclopedia, arranged by subject matter. It contains much lore of the late classical world Price: $
