In this two-volume collection, Boethius demonstrates his prowess as both the last of the Roman philosophers and the first of the scholastic theologians. The Theological Tractates, a well-referenced theological work, displays characteristics of his professional background as a consul. The Consolation of Philosophy was written while Boethius was in jail and soon to be executed. This work is a more personal display of Boethius’ philosophical beliefs and covers his views on fortune, death, and other issues. Boethius clearly defines the intent of his philosophical work as an attempt to explain the nature of the world around us, while the purpose of his theological work is to understand doctrines of divine revelation. With this work, Boethius was able to prepare the way for the coordination of faith and reason in the thirteenth century.

The digital edition of The Theological Tractates and the Consolation of Philosophy is part of the Loeb Classical Library series and includes its original Latin text with an English translation for side-by-side comparison.

Boethius (480–524) was brought up in the household of one of the richest and most venerable aristocrats of the time, Symmachus. He married Symmachus’ daughter and pursued a typical career for a senatorial scion of the time, alternating between ceremonial public office and private leisure.

    Boethius' treatment of the doctrine of Trinity in The Theological Tractates is worthy of the entire book. I would recommend his treatment of this difficult yet central doctrine of Christian faith to theologians, pastors and teachers. I could not put his theological work down until I was done.

    Unusual for a Community Pricing set, but this is already included in the The Medieval Preaching and Spirituality Collection (34 vols.), Verbum Capstone, Master Bundle XL and Catholic Bundle XL.
