Dr. G. Clarke Chapman, Professor of Religion, will represent Moravian College on a ship-based tour of distinguished scholars to the Crossroads of Early Christianity this June 12-26. Moravian College is pleased to welcome students and non-students who wish to participate.

The cruise tour will visit Crete, Israel, Cyprus, Rhodes, Patmos, Philippi, Istanbul, and a number of places in Turkey where St. Paul lived and worked. Biblical scholars, historians, and archaeologists from seven nations will supply valuable insights into the crossroads of Early Christianity. Rooms and meals are aboard ship, and there are optional land tours to such places as Troy, Troas, Assos, and current archaeological sites. Participating students are required to keep a journal.
