In the Footsteps of Apostle Paul

«Apostle Paul’s Tribune – A global pilgrimage»
Paul the Apostle preached the Gospel, faith, salvation and love to a large number of Jews and Verians that believed in the Gods of Olympus or had adopted outlandish worships. His preach had a great resonance and since his first visit in the Macedonian town he had proselytized many Verians to the new religion. Paul visited Veria twice; in 56 AD and at the beginning of 57 AD during his journey from Asia Minor to Greece. According to historical resources, Paul the Apostle had visited Veria at least twice between 50 AD and 57 AD in order to teach the life of Jesus to the people of the region. The Apostle of the Nations was warmly welcomed since his first visit and his preaching had a great impact on the Verians and the Jews. Today, at the spot where Paul the Apostle preached the Christian faith, there is a religious monument, the so called “St Paul’s Tribune” a few metres away from the Clock Square (Raktivan) in the centre of the town. In this spot there are roman plates dated back to the 1st and according to the tradition, Paul the Apostle was standing on them while preaching. This fact adds a unique historical, religious and sentimental value to this landmark. The monument is also decorated with impressive mosaic murals; while in the surrounding area there has been recently set a statue of Paul the Apostle of the nations, which is a donation by the patriarchate of Moscow and the Russian Academy of Art.

“Little Jerusalem”
of Byzantine

The city of Veria between the 11th and 14th century was one of the
most important Byzantine centers in Macedonia, with cultural influences directly from Istanbul, a tradition that was maintained until the end of the Ottoman Empire. The impressively large number of Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches gave the city the nickname “Little Jerusalem” and a great reputation as a regional religious center of the Byzantine Empire. Today, at the city center, 48 Byzantine and post Byzantine churches with beautiful frescoes are well preserved out of the 72 that once existed in the city.
