Abstract
As a scholar, senator, and consul, whose life was centered in Rome and later in Ravenna, Boethius belonged to two worlds—the world of pagan antiquity and the world of the Christian Middle Ages—and his life and work embody and embrace the spirit of both. The essays in this interdisciplinary collection examine Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy, vernacular translations of the Consolation of philosophy, Boethius in art and literary history, Boethius in religion and mythography. The volume concludes with a critical edition of The Boke of Coumfort of Bois.
