It has been described as the single most important and influential work in the West on Medieval and early Renaissance Christianity, and is also the last great Western work that can be called Classical.[1][2]Contents 1 Consolation of Philosophy 2 Influence 3 See also 4 Notes 5 Sources 6 External links Consolation of Philosophy A golden volume not unworthy of the leisure of Plato or Tully ? Edward Gibbon[3] Consolation of Philosophy was written during a one-year imprisonment Boethius served while awaiting trial ? and eventual horrific execution ? for the crime of treason under the Ostrogothic King Theodoric the Great. Boethius was at the very heights of power in Rome and was brought down by treachery. This experience inspired the text, which reflects on how evil can exist in a world governed by God (the problem of theodicy), and how happiness can be attainable amidst fickle fortune, while also considering the nature of happiness and God. It has been described as "by far the most interesting example of prison literature the world has ever seen."[4]
