Consolatio Philosophiae

by Boethius


An important work on the subject of philosophy from the late classical age which has informed much medieval religious thought. The book was written by the author during a year of imprisonment before he was tried (and executed) for treason, and it reflects on the nature of God, happiness, evil, and free will.

This book was among those that the covenant obtained from Brother Tancredus. Although it reflects on the nature of God, it makes no mention of Jesus or Christ, and this may have been a factor in Tancredus’ selection of this book for his library.
