I really agree with aggienation idea here. I read some of Plutarch works, some totally, others partially, but I don’t recall to read this, so it would be interesting to read those specific paragraphs/sentences, so we can know in detail about what we are talking. Besides reading his words can give us a better idea to formulate some questions, specifically: What was the time period? Was about the beginning of the Roman Empire or the Greek Classical Age? Don’t know much about Sparta, but I have the idea that there were huge changes.
I went on line to see if I could find it, but I will have to find my book. Naturally the first thing I found was Spartan men were totally gay. Gotta love consistency but it doesn't solve my problem. Why did those women/priestesses encourage some boys to be beaten to death. If you don't think they did that premeditatedly, then that would be sad but encouraging.
