Athens

Additional Links

In the time of the New Testament, Athens was the world’s great centre of learning. It was famous also for its magnificent architecture, seen in its many temples and public buildings. There is only one recorded occasion on which Paul visited the city, and on that occasion his evangelism was only moderately successful (Acts 17:15-34). Concerning Paul’s debate with the philosophers of the city see AREOPAGUS; EPICUREANS; STOICS.
