    ... to Christianity. Lydia provided Paul with shelter. Paul was eventually imprisoned here but was released. The site of Lydia's baptism is close by and is marked by a baptistry which everyone in this area is baptized in.

    The city began to be abandoned in the 7th century AD as a result of strong earthquakes and Slavic raids. It survived as a fort during the Byzantine period but was completely destroyed after the Turkish conquest in ...

    ... for a synagogue. They met for prayer by the River outside the city, where interested gentiles joined them. Around 49 AD, Paul, Timothy and Silvanus climbed the Roman ‘Via Egnatia’, from the port of Neapolis (today’s Kavala) to Philippi.

    ... people would gather together to pray. It was well-known that places of prayer were often located near water sources as Paul would have known from his Jewish heritage. Josephus (37 – c. 100 A.D.) mentions a decree in Halicarnassus by a Roman official named Marcus Alexander that permitted Jews to build places of prayer near the sea, “which is in accordance with their custom” (Ant. 14.258). And, Philo (c. 25 B.C – c. 50 A.D.) describes the Jews of ...

    The locals amused themselves trying to feed the seagulls with cookies or whatever. My luck was not much better re seagull shots though I did try to get them with an island backdrop, Brys.
