Essay topics may include subjects such as Boethius’s place within the classical tradition, the history and politics of the late Roman Empire, the early Byzantine Empire, and the Ostrogothic Kingdom, and the reception and influence of Boethius’s The Consolation of Philosophy and other writings in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Manuscript editions of Boethius’s works are also invited. Those interested in writing review articles or book reviews for the journal should contact the editors for a list of books received. All articles are bibliographically indexed in the MLA Bibliography and the International Medieval Bibliography.
