St Paul embarked on three missionary journeys in his lifetime. These travels took him throughout southern Asia Minor, to the lands surrounding the Mediterranean and as far west as Rome and on to modern-day Spain. This voyage will take you to several of the places the Apostle visited and reached along the way including Corinth and the ruins of Epidaurus. It was in ancient Corinth that St. Paul preached and lived for two years and founded a church in 50AD. Visit the ruins of the ancient city where St. Paul worked and explore the 1st century ruins of the agora where St. Paul's trial by Gallio took place. Explore Epidaurus, the city dedicated to Asclepius, the God of Healing, and walk through the ruins of the medical facilities as well as through the astonishing theatre. This itinerary also includes other places of great spiritual significance including the beautiful island of Patmos where St. John wrote the Book of the Revelation, the island of Delos most sacred of places to the ancient Greeks and Philippi, where St. Paul delivered his first sermon in Europe, sowing the seeds of Christianity and baptized Lydia, the first Christian convert in Europe. So, there you have it: a journey that takes you to some of the most important and inspiring sites on St Paul’s missionary travels and also to some of the most beautiful spots in the Mediterranean. All this accompanied by early autumn breezes and expert lecturers.
