De consolatione philosophiae

Post by bedwere » Thu Jan 07, 2016 11:05 pm

Hi,

I plan to make a voice recording of the De consolatione philosophiae for Librivox. Since I need to read from a public domain text, would you recommend one of these three editions over the others? Maybe the most recent (Weinberg)? Or maybe you know other sources I could use. Thanks!

Great news :D

A Companion to Boethius in the Middle Ages (2012) does not comment on Peiper's edition but writes "A reliable and long-used edition of the Latin text (...)" about Weinberger.

Thank you very much for this! I've much enjoyed your other recordings, especially the Confessions. This one is particularly welcome, as the Consolatio is one of my favorite books (I've recently begun reading the commentary on it by Dionysius Cartusianius!).

I am much in your debt.
