St. Isidore of Seville
Born 556 in Spain - Died 636 in Spain
Feast Day - April 4
Proposed patron saint of computers and the Internet

His two brothers and one sister were also saints.

He had to work hard in school, but he eventually became one of the most educated men in Spain.

He was archbishop of Seville from 601 until his death in 636.

He wrote many books, including an encyclopedia, a dictionary, and a history of the world from creation until his time.
