Short Translation of an Extract from Nicholas Trevet's Commentary on Boethius De Consolatione Philosophiae

Nicholas Trevet, born to a knightly family in 1258 and a student of the arts at both Oxford and Paris University at the turn of the fourteenth century, was in the words of Beryl Smalley “a true polymath, being theologian, biblicist, hebraist, historian and classicist.” Trevet travelled widely throughout England, France and Italy in his lifetime and his work was esteemed both in the English Order of Preachers and, through his connection to the Cardinal Nicholas of Prato, at the Papal Court in Avignon the library of which contained a number of his books.   1,844 more words
