The Parallel Lives are a series of biographies written by Plutarch. During the early 16th century, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze bought a copy of this book from a book shop in Constantinople.

Summary

Plutarch's famous examination of human character and virtue is a collection of biographies of famous men (only men, sadly) arranged in parallel groups: each Greek biography is paired with a more contemporary Roman equivalent. Less a historical treatment of its subjects, "Parallel Lives" is an investigation of the influence of character on human destiny.
