Boethius on celestial ascent and deification

Boethius' {480-524} famous Consolation of Philosophy includes several passages describing the ascent of the soul to God, resulting in its deification.  These can be found in 3.9 (poem), 4.1 (poem).  He discusses deification in  3.10.22-25 and 4.3.  His perspective is that of a Neoplatonic Christian.
