Title: “Why Everyone Should Read Boethius"
Date: March 5 
Time: 4:00 PM
Description: King Alfred the Great, Geoffrey Chaucer and Queen Elizabeth I are three of the many thousands of readers who have found strength in the face of tragedy by turning to the short treatise of the Late Roman writer Boethius. This brief lecture argues that the Consolation of Philosophy, one of the most influential texts in the medieval world, is not only relevant but vital for citizens of the twenty-first century.
