This volume presents the first half of the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference of the International Plutarch Society (2002). The selected papers are divided by theme in sections concentrating on political, philosophical, and literary aspects of Plutarch's presentation of statesmen and their activities, and on the aftermath of this Plutarchan heritage. The volume bears witness to the ongoing, wide-ranging interest in the work of Plutarch.
Lukas de Blois is Professor of Ancient History at the University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He has published on the crisis of the Roman republic in the first century B.C., the history of the Roman empire in the third century A.D., ancient historiography, Plutarch’s Greek and Roman Lives, and the history of ancient Sicily.
I sincerely believe that, at least for every Plutarch-addict, this should be compulsory reading. … excellently edited and produced.'
