Lives of the Visigothic Fathers
These five seventh-century religious texts cast light not only on the development of the church in Visigothic Spain and its internal politics, but also on its, at times troubled, relationship with the Visigothic state and the history of that state itself, particularly in the period when the Visigoths changed their adherence from Arian to Trinitarian Christianity.
"...these intriguing texts will help dispel the still prevalent notion that Visigothic Spain was some kind of 'Dark Age'"—Bulletin of Hispanic Studies
