Byzantine Architecture in athens
In 51 AD, St. Paul the Apostle visited Athens, the cradle of Philosophy, Science and the Arts, and the proud host of Parthenon. He arrived by boat at Faleron, the then port of the greater Athens area. Legend has it that as St. Paul walked towards the city he found an altar bearing the inscription “to the unknown God”. As he waited for his students Silas and Timothy, to arrive from the northern Greek region of Macedonia, he walked across the the ancient Agora, the center of all civic life and the Acropolis, and got into discussion with various philosophers, before ending at Areos Pagos where, according to the legend, he preached the Unknown God to the Athenians and introduced Christianity in Athens.
