Boethius (Boetius)--Anicius Manlius Severinus--Roman statesman and philosopher (ca. 480-524 CE), was son of Flavius Manlius Boetius, after whose death he was looked after by several men, especially Memmius Symmachus. He married Symmachus's daughter, Rusticiana, by whom he had two sons. All three men rose to high honours under Theodoric the Ostrogoth, but Boethius fell from favour, was tried for treason, wrongly condemned, and imprisoned at Ticinum (Pavia), where he wrote his renowned The Consolation of Philosophy. He was put to death in 524, to the great remorse of Theodoric. Boethius was revered as if he were a saint and his bones were removed in 996 to the Church of S. Pietro in Ciel d'Oro, and later to the Cathedral. The tower in Pavia where he was imprisoned is still venerated. Boethius was author of Latin translations of Aristotle, commentaries on various philosophical works, original works on logic, five books on music, and other works. His The Consolation of Philosophy is the last example of purely literary Latin of ancient times--a mingling of alternate dialogue and poems. His Theological Tractates are also included in this volume.… (més)

A parallel translation, and a vivid romp into a religious view of the world and the attempt to accept one's place within it. ( )

So brilliant, but so dense. I've read it so many times and I'm still only scratching the surface. I suspect this will play a prominent role in my dissertation. ( )

This review is for the “Consolation of Philosophy”.

Excellent book. I've read the book a couple of times and enjoyed it immensely, particularly when addressing fortune, adversity, the pursuit of happiness, free will and what makes life worth living. Much of the book’s philosophical arguments (particularly Book IV and V) are only valid if one believes in God and those portions make for better theology than philosophy. For example, Boethius carefully addresses the foreknowledge of God and demonstrates that this in no way negates free will. I did find Boethius’ efforts to show the unhappiness and punishment of the wicked to be strained. Regardless, “Consolation of Philosophy” remains a valuable and enlightening philosophical work which I highly recommend to persons interested in philosophy and theology. ( )
