Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius
First published Fri May 6, 2005; substantive revision Thu Aug 5, 2010 Consolation of Philosophy, as a talented literary writer, with a gift for making philosophical ideas dramatic and accessible to a wider public. He had previously translated Aristotle's logical works into Latin, written commentaries on them as well as logical textbooks, and used his logical training to contribute to the theological discussions of the time. All these writings, which would be enormously influential in the Middle Ages, drew extensively on the thinking of Greek Neoplatonists such as Porphyry and Iamblichus. Recent work has also tried to identify and evaluate Boethius's own contribution, as an independent thinker, though one working within a tradition which put little obvious weight on philosophical originality. Both aspects of Boethius will be considered in the sections which follow.

Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius
Roman statesman and philosopher , often styled "the last of the Romans ", regarded by tradition as a Christian martyr , born at Rome in 480; died at Pavia in 524 or 525. Descended from a consular family , he was left an orphan at an early age and was educated by the pious and noble-minded Symmachus , whose daughter, Rusticana, he married . As early as 507 he was known as a learned man, and as such was entrusted by King Theodoric with several important missions. He enjoyed the confidence of the king, and as a patrician of Rome was looked up to by the representatives of the Roman nobility. When, however, his enemies accused him of disloyalty to the Ostrogothic king, alleging that he plotted to restore "Roman liberty", and added the accusation of "sacrilege" (the practice of astrology ), neither his noble birth nor his great popularity availed him. He was cast into prison , condemned unheard, and executed by order of Theodoric . During his imprisonment , he reflected on the instability of the favour of princes and the inconstancy of the devotion of his friends. These reflections suggested to him the theme of his best-known

Boethius, c.475-524
Anicius Manlius Severinus, better known as Boethius, was born of a consular family and studied philosophy, mathematics and poetry. Soon after 500 he was appointed a court minister by the Gothic king, Theodoric, now ruling Italy from Rome. Boethius was made consul in 510, and his two sons shared the same honor in 522. But his boldness brought down upon his head the vengeance of those whom he had checked in their oppressions. He was accused of treasonable designs against Theodoric, was stripped of his dignities, and, after imprisonment and torture at Pavia, was executed in 524. During his imprisonment he wrote his famous De Consolatione Philosophiae (a selection of which follows), in which the author holds a conversation with Philosophy, who shows him the mutability of all earthly fortune, and the insecurity of everything save virtue. The work, which in style imitates the best Augustan models, is theistic in its language, but affords no indication that that its writer was in fact a Christian. Boethius was the last great Roman writer who understood Greek and his translations of Aristotle were long the only means of studying Greek philosophy. His manuals on arithmetic, astronomy, geometry and music were generally used in medieval schools. The following selection is intended to give you a brief "taste" of Boethius. With any luck, you will find yourself buried in the world of the

Biography of Boethius
Boethius - (480-524), Philosopher and statesman
Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius was born in or near Rome around the year 480 A.D. Orphaned young, he was brought up in the household of one of the richest and most venerable aristocrats of the time, Symmachus. He married Symmachus's daughter and pursued a typical career for a senatorial scion of the time, alternating between ceremonial public office and private leisure. In two ways, however, Boethius was unique. He was far and away the best educated Roman of his age: indeed, there had been no one like him for a century, and there would never be another (the senate, long since ceremoniously inane, disappeared forever by the end of the sixth century). He had a command of the Greek language adequate to make him a student, translator, and commentator of the Platonic philosophies of his age (to which we give the name Neoplatonism, to distinguish their opinions from the original doctrines of Plato himself). Boethius may in fact have studied in the Greek east, perhaps at Athens, perhaps at Alexandria, but we cannot be sure. At any rate, he undertook an ambitious project of translating and interpreting all the works of both Plato and Aristotle and then he opined demonstrating the essential agreement of the two. Only a few pieces of this large undertaking were completed before Boethius's life was cut short. The Consolation of Philosophy

Boethius' explanation of free will. We have the capability to determine what should be sought after, and what we should exclude from our lives.
Sponsored Links
The question of free will has been debated for years. Many different conclusions have been drawn from the discussions. Boethius contemplates this while he is in jail. He doesn’t understand how, if chance isn’t real, there can be free will. For example, if a farmer finds gold in his field, it is not by chance that he has found the gold. It is because his path, or chain, as Boethius calls it, has crossed with another’s chain. With someone’s path who had put the gold there in the first place. Boethius asks "Does our will have any freedom? Or are the motions of human souls also bound by the fatal chain?" Lady philosophy appears to him in a vision, and answers this question for him. She explains that the mere fact that we are capable of reason ensures that we have free will. Our reason enables us to make judgments that enable us to make decisions. We have the capability to determine what should be sought after, and what we should exclude from our lives. "But I do not say that this freedom is the same in all beings" Lady Philosophy explains. She gives us the levels of freedom of the mind. We are most free when we are "engaged in contemplation of the divine mind." The next step down is when "they are joined to bodies" and the lowest is "when they are bound by earthly fetters." She says that we are in "utter slavery" when we totally lose sight of what is good for us and give in to our addictions. But she says that God foresees this and puts everyone in a situation to fit his or her needs.

Glyn's Recommended Print edition The Essential Squashed Philosophers from INTRODUCTION TO The Consolation of Philosophy
Born of Rome in AD 480 from a family of leading burghers, the mathematician, musicologist and polymath Anicius Manlius Severinus Bothius became an advisor to the Theodoric the Great, but, suspected of tipping-off the enemy Byzantines, was imprisoned. It was in Ticinum (Modern Pavia) gaol that he wrote what was to become one of the most influential books of the Middle Ages, translated by both Chaucer and Alfred the Great- The Consolation of Philosophy. The Chronicle of Valesii tells that he was, 'tortured for a very long time by a cord that was twisted round his forehead so that his eyes started from his head. Then at last amidst his torments he was killed with a club.' CS Lewis said of The Consolation, that "Until about two hundred years ago it would, I think, have been hard to find an educated man in any European country who did not love it."
Although it is unclear whether he was a devoted Christian or not, the brave and reflective way in which he faced death led the Roman Church to accept popular devotion and acknowledge him as St Severinus Boethius, his feast day is observed on October 12th.

Boethius (c.480-c.525 CE) was philosopher, poet, politician, and (perhaps) martyr.

Jacques Maritain Center Readings
Boethius
Boethius, Tradition began very early to represent Boethius as a martyr for the Christian Faith. It was believed that among the accusations brought against him was devotion to the Catholic cause, which at that time was championed by the Emperor Justin against the Arian Theodoric. In the eighth century this tradition had assumed definite shape, and in many places Boethius was honoured as a martyr, and his feast observed on the twenty-third of October. In recent times, critical scholarship has gone to the opposite extreme, and there have not been wanting critics who asserted that Boethius was not a Christian at all, or that, if he was, he abjured the Faith before his death. The foundation for this opinion is the fact that in the "Consolations of Philosophy" no mention is made of Christ or of the Christian religion. A saner view, which seems at the present time to be prevalent among scholars, is that Boethius was a Christian and remained a Christian to the end. That he was a Christian is proved by his theological tracts, some of which, as we shall see, are undoubtedly genuine. That he remained a Christian is the obvious inference from the ascertained fact of his continued association with Symmachus; and if the "Consolations of Philosophy" bears no trace of Christian influence, the explanation is at hand in the fact that it is an entirely artificial exercise, a philosophical dialogue modelled on strictly pagan productions, a treatise in which, according to the ideas of method which prevailed at the time, Christian feeling and Christian thought had no proper place. Besides, even if we disregard certain allusions which some interpret in a Christian sense, there are passages in the treatise which seem plainly to hint that, after philosophy has poured out all her consolations for the benefit of the prisoner, there are more potent remedies (

If anyone defined a world view for the medievals, and even the people of the Renaissance, it was this poor, battered man trying in his last days of life to explain his suffering and the existence of evil.
    fortune ," the latter the idea of " Providence ." These two perspectives are perhaps the most important legacy Boethius bequeaths to history and the Western concept of history and time, and I'm having you read the section of the work which defines the difference between the two. The problem of Providence leads to a second question: if God knows the future, does that mean that the future is predestined and that human beings have essentially no moral choice in the matter? The second section you are reading attempts to explain how "Providence" (which means: "seeing forward") does not mean "predetermination" or "predestination." Richard Hooker

    Fate and Providence (Book IV, Prose 6)
    "It remains," I said, "for you to explain this apparent injustice I'm suffering now (that is, Boethius' imprisonment, torture, and impending execution)." "The question you're asking," Lady Philosophy replied with a smile, "is the grandest of all mysteries, one which can never be explained completely to the human intellect, for, when one problem is removed, many more arise to take its place, and arise and arise unless the mind is keen and awake. For the problem you raise touches on a number of difficult questions: the simplicity of Providence, the nature of Fate, the unpredictability of Chance, divine and human knowledge, predestination, and free will. You know the difficulty involved in these questions; nevertheless, I will try to answer them in the short space allotted us." Then, as though she were beginning for the first time, Philosophy said, "The coming-into-being of all things, and the entire course that changeable things take, derive their causes, their order, and their forms from the unchanging mind of God. The mind of God set down all the various rules by which all things are governed while still remaining unchanged in its own simplicity. When the government of all things is seen as belonging to the simplicity and purity of the divine mind, we call it 'Providence.' When this government of all things is seen from the point of view of the things that change and move, that is, all things which are governed, from the very beginning of time we have called this 'Fate.' We can easily see that Providence and Fate are different if we think over the power of discernment each has. Providence is the divine reason, the divine

    remind us of the setting of Plato's Crito . In both
    instances, a prison cell and a death sentence inspired some of
    the most serene and inspired ruminations in the Western

    capacities under Theodoric the Great. But he fell into disfavor,
    and Theodoric ordered his execution on charges of treason in
    the year 525. Boethius had been a student of the Greek philosophers, had translated Aristotle into Latin, and further attempted to reconcile Aristotelian and Platonic worldviews. But now in prison, he composed his final work, a dialogue between himself and the spirit of Lady Philosophy which, in its profound reflections on the vanity of human wishes, it stands comparison with the legacy of his celebrated Greek predecessors. This work deserves to be better known, and is unfortunately often left off syllabuses in favor of Marcus Aurelius or Lucretius. But the influence of Boethius's
