Example text

Yet many Christian intellectuals found it seductive. In particular, they were haunted by an image in Plotinus of our having somehow left their fatherland (πατρίς, Latin patria) where the Father (πατήρ, pater) dwelt. But, the philosopher rhetorically asked, how shall we return? 19 This is a powerful expression of human alienation which manages to suggest the possibility of moving beyond this situation. 28). 3). 9, tr. Relihan) The language owes something to Plotinus, yet it has echoes of John’s Gospel, in which Christ speaks of a return to the Father through himself, he being the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).

This is plausible, but by no means certain. 3. Ordo generis Cassiodororum, ed. 2. 4. Livy: Symmachus Ep. 13 (Symmachus, 1883).

Such parallels may suggest a way of resolving the frequently asked question as to whether Boethius remained a Christian at the time he wrote the Consolation; another way of approaching the question would be to place Boethius’ thinking against the entirety of the thought of Plotinus, which would show that much of the thinking of the latter which was not compatible with Christianity was simply left aside by Boethius, and so lead to the same conclusion.
