By Denis Brault, Professor of Latin and Greek for La Fondation Humanitas.

The biographies written in Greek by Plutarch in the middle of the first century of our era introduced some interesting parallels in the lives of the Great Men of Ancient Greek and Roman history. How similar - and how different - were Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, Demosthenes and Cicero?

With musical accompaniment by cellist Vincent Bélanger.
