This chapter examines Plato's view on the Virgin Mary and the Holy Family. It explains that Trinitarian pluralism can better accommodate Plato's Holy Family and that in his Agathon Plato suggested that the birth of love meant that it has replaced the god's strife. The chapter suggests that in spite of fashionable relativisms, it is important to preserve the Good's absoluteness against the threat of nihilism, radical historism, and sophistry.
