The works of Plutarch, notably his Moralia, provide us with exceptional evidence to reconstruct the spiritual and intellectual atmosphere of the first centuries CE. As a priest of Apollo at Delphi, Plutarch was a first range witness of ancient religious experience; as a Middle Platonist, he was also actively involved in the developments of the philosophical school. Besides, he also provided a more detached point of view both regarding numerous religious practices and currents that were permeating the building of ancient pagan religion and the philosophical views of other schools. His combining the insider and the sensitive observer's perspectives make Plutarch a crucial starting point for the understanding of the religious and philosophical discourse of Late Antiquity.

"A tous les points de vue, la vaste majorite des propositions sont de qualite et ouvrent sur de nouvelles perspectives. De ce point de vue, l'ouvrage atteint son objectif initial, celui d'eclairer le contexte culturel des premiers siecles." Xavier Brouillette, BMCR 2013.08.29

"Der Band ist sorgfaltig prasentiert und fugt der Diskussion um das Verhaltnis von Religion und Philosophie bei Plutarch einige wichtige Aspekte hinzu. (...) Der Band sollte in keiner Bibliothek fehlen, die sich mit kaiserzeitlicher Literatur, Philosophie und Religion beschaftigt." Rainer Hirsch-Luipold, sehepunkte 14 (2014), Nr. 1 [15.01.2014]

" (...) The volume offers many fine-tuned insights as well as a sense of Plutarch's own breadth and depth."
