Abstract :
Many specialists of both Plutarch and John Chrysostom agree that the latter was familiar with the former’s works, and that several traces of Plutarchan influence can in fact be detected in different works of John. This article offers a fresh look at all the evidence discussed so far, to conclude that no decisive argument can be found that proves Plutarchan influence on Chrysostom.
