Info tab content
This seminar will consider how travel could and did take place in the Roman empire during the first century. A close reading of the Acts of the Apostles will afford insights into the experiences of Paul of Tarsus on his journeys around the Mediterranean as he engaged in economic activities and spread new religious ideas. Topics will include modes and seasons of travel, dangers and challenges on land and sea, interactions with Roman government officials and soldiers in various provinces, how to meet and greet the locals, building networks of contacts for future visits, and how to plan and finance an ambitious expedition abroad.
