9780739127711: Saint Leander, Archbishop of Seville: A Book on the Teaching of Nuns and a Homily in Praise of the Church

Saint Leander, Archbishop of Seville describes the life of Leander, who brought the Catholic faith to Spain in the late sixth century, becoming a saint after his death in c. 600 AD. Despite inheriting great wealth and his sister's exposure to high society, Leander became a monk and persuaded his sister to give up wealth and opportunities for marriage in order to become a nun. Detailing how he persuaded her to join a convent and his celebration of his country's acceptance of the true faith, this book provides a new perspective of Leander's Byzantine parents and two brothers, Fulgentius and Isidore. When besieged by the Arian king, Liuvigild, Leander's parents and sister escaped to Carthage. Later in life, Leander taught Isidore to take over after him in Seville.

About the Author:

John R. C. Martyn is associate professor and senior fellow in the School of Historical Studies at the University of Melbourne.

Review:

In this welcome book, John Martyn does a great service to Early-Medievalists by rescuing Isidore of Seville's fascinating elder brother from the mists of obscurity. By highlighting the extraordinary lives of Leander and his saintly siblings, Martyn reminds us how much remains to be explored about this most exciting period in history. Martyn's intimate knowledge of the writings of Leander's contemporaries and of Classical Latin in general skilfully illuminate the nuances of Leander's writings. (Pamela O'Neill, University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, Australian Early Medieval Association)

This volume provides a key, unusually early text about the way of life for religious women in the late antique and medieval periods. Martyn's translation is both elegant and accurate. (Constant J. Mews, Monash University)
