This is a universal history, beginning with the creation of the world and going up to 616 AD, 20 years before Isidore’s death. It is regarded as a chief authority on Gothic history in the West. It is largely based on earlier works of history, of which it is a compendium. A complete translation can be found on Kenneth Wolf’s website.
