Full Day
Celcius Library in Ephesus The transient nature of greatness is rarely as clearly displayed as it is in Ephesus, a city once renowned throughtout the

Clasiccal world as a major trading port, a metropolis of some 250,000 inhabitants and a religious and cultural center. It was

also the home of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the monumental Temple of Artemis, known as Diana to the

Romans.

Ephesus holds an important place in the history of the early Christian Church as it is here that St.Paul preached and it was to

the Ephesians that he addressed some of his memorable epistles. Some 400 year after St. Paul's visits a great Ecumenical

Council assembled here to hold heated theological arguments and lay down the low on important points of Christian doctrine.

Nearby, nestled on a mountain, is a tiny chapel built on the spot where, according to tradition, stood the last home of Mary, the

Mother of Jesus.

It is now a place of pilgrimage.
