About this collection

Browse This Collection

This early 16th century text is an abridged German translation of Plutarch’s Parallel Lives and contains biographies, organized in pairs to compare common virtues and vices, of many influential Greeks and Romans.  The work is infused with Plutarch’s emphasis on personal character and ethics over historical accuracy.
