Saint Isidore of Seville was born either in Seville or Carthagena, Spain. The last of the Western Latin Fathers Isidore was a theologian, encyclopedist, and historian.
He became Archbishop of Seville around 600; his episcopate was
notable for the Councils at Seville (618) and Toledo (633).
He also wrote works
on linguistics, natural science, history, and biographies of 86 biblical persons.
Pope Innocent XIII formally declared him a doctor of the church in 1722.
