14th-century English copy of Boethius' philosophical dialogue in five books between a narrator and Lady Philosophy which deals with ideas of fate, fortune, and the relationship between free will and divine omniscience, and which was one of the most important philosophical texts of the medieval period. The text alternates between Metrum (verse) and Prosa (prose), and this copy of the text begins with the fifth metrum of Book 2. The text of Books 2 and 3 is fairly heavily marked with interlinear glosses and occasional marginal notes and manicules, and has simple ornamental initials and rubrication; the remainder of the manuscript has only occasional interlinear glosses and spaces with guide letters for initials.
