Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
Boethius' De consolatione Philosophiae knew continuous success during the Middle Ages. This 14th century manuscript offers a complete copy of the Latin text with some interlinear glosses. The book decoration consists of a historiated initial with a half-length frontal portrait of the author as he points to his book (f. 1). From this  initial sprouts a short leaf scroll. In addition there are very beautiful decorated initials placed at the beginning of the various books of  the Consolatione (f. 8, 17, 30 and 41). Their style indicates that the manuscript was made in northern Italy, perhaps Bologna. (rou)
