|Profession:||Philosopher, Statesman, Theologian|
Boethius was born in Rome. He was a Roman philosopher, statesman and theologian. Boethius was appointed a senator when he was 25. His education and experience fetched him a royal service under King of Ostrogoths, Theodoric the Great. Boethius believed that Rome was entitled to educate the world, and undertook the task of translating the wisdom of Greek into Latin, with appropriate explanations, in order to make it accessible to the west. Boethius was honored in the naming of moon and mercury, which are called crater Boethius.
