Boethius and the Problem of Paganism

Marenbon mentions L in passing as an “eminent example” (329) of medieval authors and thinkers who raise “problem of paganism,” which is how he terms the discussion in the Middle Ages about the salvation of virtuous pagans. Marenbon argues that The Consolation of Philosophy is integral to the way in which medieval philosophers resolved this problem.
