Fascinating trail across Greece for J-Term

Follow the footsteps of St. Paul’s travels through Greece in the mid-30s to 50s of the first century, a time of dramatic social, religious and cultural changes throughout the Roman Empire. Explore Athens, Corinth, Thessaloniki and Philippi – places that played decisive roles in the expansion of Christianity.

This pivotal period of social and religious change ushered in a new way of life, one in total contrast with the traditional values of Roman Greece. What is the historical context around the growth of this new religion? It was a critical time in history and its exploration uncovers so much about the time, religion, the people and their hopes. If you're interested in history, social change or theology this program could be for you.

  • Earn credit in January with this 200 level course exploring theology, philosophy, culture and history in a fascinating corner of the world.

  • Gain a deeper understanding both of these influential and dynamic times and the role Paul played, in a hostile cultural environment, in building the foundations of what became a truly global religion.

  • Based in Athens this four-week program will bring you to key locations throughout Greece as you make your trail of discovery.
