Chapter Summary

The enormous scope of Plutarch's ethical writings, the state of Plutarchean studies, and the availability of collaborators necessitated a selection of the treatises to be studied. Contributions to the Corpus Hellenisticum project have taken different forms. Some, following the example of Wettstein's work, which the project seeks to amplify, list parallels from pagan authors to the NT in canonical order, with very little comment added. An introductory essay by Hans Dieter Betz comments on ethics in general in the Greco-Roman period as well as on the ethics of Plutarch and early Christianity. All essays on the treatises are introduced by discussions which focus on understanding the treatises in their own right.

Keywords: Corpus Hellenisticum project; Hans Dieter Betz; Plutarch
