Boethius, Anicius Manlius Severinus [Astro*Index]

\boh-ee'thee-us\

(480?-524) Roman philosopher. Born at Rome, died at Ticinum (Pavia), Italy.

Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius was the last Roman author who understood Greek. His translations and commentaries on Aristotle and on other scientific matters offered the only source available to European readers for the following six centuries, until documents from Arabic sources were translated into Latin.
