Boethius (AD 480 - 524 or 525) was a Christian philosopher of the 6th century, often called "the last of the Romans". He was born in Rome to an important family and many of his ancestors had been consuls, including his father Fl. Manlius Boethius in 487, but he served as an official for the kingdom of the Ostrogoths. In 522 he also saw his two sons become consuls, but he was later executed by King Theodoric the Great on suspicion of having conspired with the Byzantine Empire and is thus known in church history as a martyr.
