Description

Isidorus Hispalensis, auch Isidor von Sevilla (560-636) war Nachfolger seines Bruders Leander im Amt des Bischofs von Sevilla. In seiner Enzyklopädie Etymologiarum sive originum libri XX kompilierte er das im Westen des Mittelmeerraums um 600 noch vorhandene Wissen der Antike und machte es seiner Zeit verfügbar. Diese Enzyklopädie bewahrte viele Fragmente des Wissens der Antike die ansonsten für immer verloren gegangen wären.

Saint Isidore of Seville(560-636) succeeded his brother Leander as archbishop of Seville. At a time of disintegration of classical culture he attempted to compile a summa of universal knowledge. This encyclopedia Etymologiarum sive originum libri XX epitomized all ancient and contemporary learning. It preserves many fragments of classical learning, otherwise hopelessly lost..
