Summary

Boethius’ life and works form the bridge between classical philosophy and medieval theology. In this treatise, Boethius sets out to articulate the orthodox teaching of the Trinity philosophically, simultaneously defending it against possible heresies. Arianism, one of the most well-known, widespread, and controversial heresies, receives particular attention. His views on the Trinity reflect his background in Platonic and Aristotelian thought, a background which subsequent Christian philosophers and theologians, such as Thomas Aquinas, would inherit. This particular treatise is often read as a supplement to Boethius’ still popular and influential work The Consolation of Philosophy.
