MetadataShow full item record
Plutarch's De Iside et Osiride is an interpretative rather than an historical document, yet has never been studied as such. The problem of the present investigation is the examination of the treatise and its backgrounds with the intent of discovering why Plutarch wrote the essay, what he hoped to achieve by so doing, and what methods and techniques he employed in the endeavor.
