There was a talk on Boethius of Dacia today; I couldn't go because I was meeting with students in a class for which I'm grading. But I've been very surprised at how many graduate students don't know that Boethius of Dacia is different from Ancius Manlius Severus Boethius. The latter is the Boethius, the one who wrote The Consolation of Philosophy. The former is a Latin Averroist, often associated with Siger of Brabant. Now, I can understand not being able to place Boethius of Dacia; but confusing them entirely just seems to me to be a bit odd. But perhaps that's just me?
