Anicius Manlius Torquatus Severinus Boethius bol antický kresťanský filozof a spisovateľ. Narodil sa v Ríme v rodine konzula. Sám však slúžil ako vládny úradník na ostrogótskom kráľovskom dvore. Neskôr ho ostrogótsky kráľ Teodorich Veľký dal popraviť kvôli podozreniu zo sprisahania. Je autorom významného filozofického diela De consolatione philosophiae , ktoré napísal vo väzení pred popravou. Prekladal a komentoval Aristotelove logické spisy.

Boethia označujú za „posledného Rimana a prvého scholastika“; pripravil cestu stredovekej scholastike.

„For if vicious propensity is, as it were, a disease of the soul like bodily sickness, even as we account the sick in body by no means deserving of hate, but rather of pity, so, and much more, should they be pitied whose minds are assailed by wickedness, which is more frightful than any sickness.“

—  Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius

Prose IV; line 42; translation by H. R. James
Alternate translation:
For as faintness is a disease of the body, so is vice a sickness of the mind. Wherefore, since we judge those that have corporal infirmities to be rather worthy of compassion than of hatred, much more are they to be pitied, and not abhorred, whose minds are oppressed with wickedness, the greatest malady that may be.
The Consolation of Philosophy · De Consolatione Philosophiae, Book IV
Originál: (la) Nam si uti corporum languor ita vitiositas quidam est quasi morbus animorum, cum aegros corpore minime dignos odio sed potius miseratione iudicemus, multo magis non insequendi sed miserandi sunt quorum mentes omni languore atrocior urguet improbitas.

The bramble and the thorn.“
