“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”

― Plutarch

 

‘Plutarch’s Lives’ or ‘Parallel Lives’ is one of the most important and comprehensive collection of biographies of famous Greek and Roman figures. Plutarch was not so much focused on providing a historical account of these famous individuals as much as he was seeking to write of the type of person they were and the life in which they lived. He focuses on Alexander the Great, Romulus and Remus, Demosthenes, Cicero, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and many other important figures.

 

This 1541 German printing was the first complete German edition ever printed of ‘Lives’. This masterpiece was edited by Hieronymus Boner, a renowned 16th-century translator of Thucydides, Plutarch and Herodotus. This example also includes numerous incredible woodcut engravings.
