The Estoria de los godos is a paraphrase and summary of the Latin text DeRebus Hispaniae, or Historia Gothica, written by Archbishop don Rodrigo Ximenez de Rada and completed in 1243. The creation of the Estoria de los godos was prompted by a genuine desire to afford the less learned inhabitants of Castile the opportunity to know more about the history of their culture and civilization. It served as a model for historiographers of the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. This etymological study of all the common names occurring in the text will serve to facilitate the reading comprehension of those interested in Spanish history who may have difficulty understanding and interpreting the language of the 13th century.
