Presentation & Annual Lunch
By Dr Amelia Brown
Paul was one of the most energetic travellers of the early church and archaeological evidence for his missions may be sought over much of the eastern Mediterranean. The book of Acts and his letters allow the modern reader to follow Saint Paul’s 1st century journey’s quite closely.
Dr Brown will discuss some recent excavations which shed light on the specific context of Saint Paul’s missions in Cyprus, Ephesus, Thessaloniki, Corinth and Malta. Archaeology has benefits and drawbacks as a source for Paul’s missions and its limitations must be understood. However; selected artefacts, monuments and landscapes can provide a better understanding of Paul’s letters and the ravel narrative of Acts.
Luncheon will be served at 1:00pm.
Talk will commence at 2:00pm.
