Biography of Cassiodorus

Cassiodorus (c.485-c.585) was a Roman statesman, renowned scholar of antiquity, and writer serving in the administration of Theodoric the Great, king of the Ostrogoths. His full name is Flavius Magbus Aurelius Cassiodorus Senator. His last name in Italian is Cassiodoro.

“Cassiodorus’ legacy is quietly profound. Before the founding of Vivarium, the copying of manuscripts had been a task reserved for either inexperienced or physically infirm devotees, and was performed at the whim of literate monks.”
