Overview

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Consolation of Philosophy (translated by Walter John Sedgefield)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

Consolation of Philosophy (Latin: Consolatio Philosophiae) is a philosophical work by Boethius, written around the year 524. 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 of the Classical Period.

Anicius Manlius Severinus Boëthius, commonly called Boethius (c. 480–524 or 525 AD), was a philosopher of the early 6th century. He was born in Rome to an ancient and prominent family which included emperors Petronius Maximus and Olybrius and many consuls. His father, Flavius Manlius Boethius, was consul in 487 after Odoacer deposed the last Western Roman Emperor. Boethius, of the noble Anicia family, entered public life at a young age and was already a senator by the age of 25. Boethius himself was consul in 510 in the kingdom of the Ostrogoths. In 522 he saw his two sons become consuls. Boethius was imprisoned and eventually executed by King Theodoric the Great, who suspected him of conspiring with the Eastern Roman Empire. While jailed, Boethius composed his Consolation of Philosophy, a philosophical treatise on fortune, death, and other issues. The Consolation became one of the most popular and influential works of the Middle Ages.

    A must read to understand free will

    Read it slowly, ready it several times, read it while reflecting on some of things that you have chosen to do. I read this book specifically for chapter 5 to help my understanding of free will. I now have a deeper understanding of free will and how Whatever I chose, I can still be in Gods favor. But like all of Gods work, that chapter 5 has left me with more questions which I need to continue on in my learning, deepening my understanding of God and developing that relationship. Read this and discover your question that will have you wanting to learn more. PS - I didn't like all the poems so skipped over most of them, but then again I am free to do that (LOL).
