Boethius, King Theodoric, and the Middle Ages

Our “Philosophers in the Midst of History” series continued with its sixth session, this time focused on the early medieval philosopher, Boethius.  We discussed his Consolation of Philosophy and the historical circumstances that led up to it – his being accused of treason, imprisonment, and later execution under King Theodoric’s government.

If you’d like to watch the videorecording of the talk, you can do so here.
