Written while Boethius was in prison, in the period leading up to his brutal execution, this is a dialogue of alternating prose and verse between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy, whose instruction on the nature of fortune and happiness, good and evil, fate and free will, restore his health and bring him to enlightenment. The clarity of the author's thought and his breadth of vision made this book hugely popular throughout medieval Europe and his ideas suffused the thought of Chaucer and Dante

Couvreur, 1901) wird durch die hier vorgelegte Edition ersetzt. Sie wird durch reichhaltige Indices erschlossen

Review text: "Ces quelques remarques montrent donc que la méthode de Moreschini, dans son refus de corriger le texte donné par la tradition manuscrite, aboutit le plus souvent à des solutions parfois à première vue surprenantes, mais qui se révèlent finalement intéressantes et sémantiquement fécondes. Cela confirme, si besoin était, l'utilité du travail réalisé par ce grand savant. Cela montre aussi qu'en matière de phililogie, tout peut et dois être remis en question, même dix ans seulement après une édition remarquable."Carlos Lévy in: Revue des Etudes Latines 85/2007

A Christian in Toga : Boethius: interpreter of antiquity and Christian theologian by Claudio Moreschini( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boethius is apparently the first Christian writer who was not engaged in dogmatic and theological problems from an ecclesiastical point of view. Boethius hadn't any ecclesiastical office, but was engaged in politics under King Theoderic in Italy, and from his youth he had devoted himself to Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy. Some of his medieval commentators noticed the unchristian, simply Platonic character of his philosophy. Claudio Moreschini, on the basis of Boethius' Opuscula Theologica and Consolatio Philosophiae, shows how he combined Christian faith and philosophy in order to solve
