People - Ancient Rome: Isidore of Seville
Saint Isidore of Seville (c. 560 4 April 636) was Archbishop of Seville for more than three decades.

Isidore of Seville in Roman Biography Isidore, Saint, an eminent Spanish scholar and bishop, born at Carthagena about 570 A.D., was a brother of Leander, Archbishop of Seville. He understood Greek, Hebrew, and Latin, and was very influential in the Spanish Church. About 600 he was appointed Bishop of Seville. The Council of Toledo, held in 650, denominated him "the glory of the Catholic Church, and the most learned man of his age." Among his most important works are, in Latin, "A Chronicle from the Origin of the World to 626 A.D.," and "Twenty Books of Etymologies," which, says Dr. Hoefer, " is one of the most precious monuments for the history of human knowledge." Died in 636 a.d. See Saint Ildefonso, "De Viris illustrious ;" Tritheim, "De Scriptoribus Ecclesiasticis;" Roeslkr, " Dissertatio ; Isidori Historia Gothorum, Vandalorum," etc., 1803.

At a time of disintegration of classical culture,[3] and aristocratic violence and illiteracy, he was involved in the conversion of the royal Visigothic Arians to Catholicism, both assisting his brother Leander of Seville, and continuing after his brother's death. He was influential in the inner circle of Sisebut, Visigothic king of Hispania. Like Leander, he played a prominent role in the Councils of Toledo and Seville. The Visigothic legislation which resulted from these councils is regarded by modern historians as exercising an important influence on the beginnings of representative government...
