Isidore the Laborer
Isidore the Labourer, also known as Isidore the Farmer (Spanish: San Isidro Labrador) (c. 1070 – 15 May 1130), was a Spanish farmworker known for his piety toward the poor and animals. He is the Catholic patron saint of farmers and of Madrid, El Gobernador, Jalisco, La Ceiba, Honduras, and of Tocoa, Honduras. His feast day is celebrated on 15 May.
The Spanish profession name labrador comes from the verb labrar ("to till", "to plow," or, in a broader sense, "to work the land"). Hence, to refer to him as simply a "labourer" is a poor translation of the Spanish labrador as it does not refer to the essential farming aspect of his work and his identity. His real name was Isidro de Merlo y Quintana.
Isidore le Laboureur (né vers 1070 à Madrid, mort vers 1130 à Madrid) est considéré comme saint ; sa fête est le 15 mai.
