Product Description

Plutarch’s Lives is a wealth of character studies, written in ancient times by a master biographer who wanted his readers to understand who the Greek and Roman heroes were as people. By focusing on stories that show what a person valued rather than merely on his accomplishments, Plutarch shines a spotlight on the character qualities of the men of ancient times.

Charlotte Mason highly valued Plutarch’s biographies and used them to teach character and citizenship. And now with Conversations on Character courses, it’s simple for you to include Plutarch in your home school as well!
