The Hortus deliciarum Garden of Delights is an illuminated encyclopedia compiled during the later 12th century by Herrad von Landsberg, abbess of the Hohenburg Abbey in Alsace. The three heads embedded in her crown represent ethics, logic, and physics, the three main branches of philosophical study at the time. Seated outside and below the larger circle are four men—poets or magicians—said to be producing fictional tales, poetry, or perhaps even magic spells. In this famous text, the allegorical figure of Philosophy visits Boethius and teaches him how to ease his suffering through contemplation of the good. According to Philosophy, the seven Liberal Arts are the necessary preparation for philosophical study.

He appears to have practiced as a jurist at Carthage. Martianus often presents philosophical views based on Neoplatonism, the only form of classical philosophy taking an active stance against Christianity in this period. Much of his work occurs in the form of dialogue, and the views of the interlocutors may not represent the author's own.
