Valha-nos São Platão!

In [unsophisticated monastic circles] Plato and Aristotle, with Plutarch not far behind, ranked with the prophets. You can see them painted in chapels on Mount Athos or on Orthodox churches in Moldavia. […] The Tree of Jesse on the outside wall of churches such as Sucevitsa often includes Thucydides, Plutarch, and even Porphyry.
