DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that one of the writers of the first encyclopedias is also considered the patron saint of the internet and computers? Saint Isidore of Seville, also known as the Schoolmaster of the Middle Ages, is an extremely learned man and was also credited with writing a dictionary, a history of the world beginning with the first creation, and many other works of knowledge. Another fun fact is that one of the three figures on the crest of the Sevilla FC is modeled after Saint Isidore's likeness. Additionally, The Order of St. Isidore of Seville is an order formed during 2000 which promotes Christian chivalry online, of which members of said order may receive modern-day knighthood!
Encyclopedias are still in use during the present time, oftentimes providing summaries of knowledge from a specific field or all branches of discipline. This particular reference work focuses on information and facts regarding a subject matter written within. Even Wikipedia, the primary source of information for both students and professionals alike, is an online encyclopedia which contains almost every single person, object, place, or event in existence, including every single piece of known information about them. All throughout the years, it comes without a doubt that encyclopedias have evolved and will continue to evolve, as well as the fact that people will still continue to use it, in one form or another.
