patron saint

saint

St. Isidore (c. 560-636) served as a powerful bishop in present-day Spain and is best known for his voluminous writing on a host of topics. His most influential work was the Etymologies, also known as the Origins, an encyclopedic tract in which he tried to record everything that was known. Small wonder that the church saw fit to recognize him as the Internet’s patron.
