Some 50 sites are known to have been visited by St Paul during his missionary journeys. The talk encompasses many of them – some of the greatest sites of the Roman Empire at its peak in the 1st century AD; Damascus, Cyprus, Antioch, Ephesus, Troy, Philippi, Corinth, Athens and Malta. The remains of great marble temples with their splendid carvings, as well as the relics of the commercial life of ports and ships are included. The magnificence of Jerusalem and Rome begin and conclude the lecture.
