In Fundamental Boethius: A Practical Guide to the Theological Tractates and Consolation of Philosophy, M. James Ziccardi presents the key passages from two of Boethius’ two most influential works, the Theological Tractates and Consolation of Philosophy. Combined with explanations from the author, this book examines in an easy to follow format Boethius’ most important contributions to both Medieval Philosophy and Christian Theology. The book also points out specific instances where Boethius borrows heavily from the ideas of earlier philosophers, the first and foremost of these being Aristotle. Also included in the book is a biographical narrative on the life of Boethius.
