Juan de Biclaro -or Juan Biclarense- was a Catholic clergyman of Visigothic origin born in Portugal. He lived many years in Constantinople and founded on his return the monastery of Biclarum and became bishop of Gerona. He wrote a chronicle about the Byzantine Empire and the Visigothic kingdom between 568 and 590, that covers the major part of Liuvigild’s reign and the first years of Reccared’s. It is extremely interesting because it narrates the facts of the times he lived through.
