He is best known for his Lives, a series of parallel biographies of heroic exemplification describing the great men of Greece and Rome. But the Moralia are as rich, and even more diverse, containing much to instruct and entertain. Written in Greek during the course of Plutarch’s life—he flourished about 100 CE—they had an enormous influence on western culture until a century or two ago.

Grayling, Financial Times
