Утешение Сатирой: Марциан Капелла как литературный источник для Северина Боэция
The paper presents some arguments that may prove literary influnce of Martianus Capella's allegorical encyclopedia 'De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii' upon Severinus Boethius' 'De consolatione Philosophiae'. Two episodes of 'De consolatione' come under examination. The first of them, the apparition of Philosophia in the opening scene of Book I, is shown to have close parallels with epiphanic scenes in Martianus Capella's 'De nuptiis'. The second episode, also from Book I of 'De consolatione', in which Philosophia compares Boethius to 'the ass with the lyre' (ὄνος λύρας), was probably inspirated with a dialogue between the Author and Satire in Book VIII of 'De nuptiis'.
