SAINT ISIDORE CANDIDATE FOR INTERNET PATRON

          ROME, JUN 24 (ZENIT).- The "Sunday Times" has joined the proposal of the Internet Observation Service that St. Isidore of Seville, the first recorded author of a database, should be Internet's patron. The British publication states that a spokesman for the Pontifical Council for Social Communications confirmed the reception of many petitions in favor of this Spanish saint and Doctor of the Church, who was born in 560. St. Isidore was a publisher of scientific topics and very influential in Medieval culture. He was also the author of many books on human learning, ranging from agriculture to medicine, from theology to domestic science. St. Isidore succeeded his elder brother, St. Leander, in the government of the diocese of Seville. ZE99062410
