Given an excellent education, he was as familiar with the writings of Plato, Aristotle and the Neoplatonists, especially Porphyry and the Athenian School, as with Augustine, and he soon acquired a reputation as a scholar. In 510 he became consul sine collega, and in 522 his two sons, not fully grown-up, obtained the consulate. Probably in the same year he became magister officiorum, but evidently had only little backing at court. He was thus drawn into the trial of Albinus for high treason; a trial in which the tensions between a pro-Byzantine party in the Senate bent on church union and the east Gothic court in Ravenna reached a climax after the sudden death of the designated successor to the throne,  Eutharich. His involvement on behalf of Albinus and the Senate led to his arrest in Pavia; he was charged with
