Ephesus, Didyma and Miletus:
Oracles and Early Christianity
September 13th to 16th



Our Quest concludes in southwestern Turkey in an area filled with sites of great significance to both the culture of antiquity and the early years of Christianity. The Temple of Artemis of Ephesus was one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, and the site of a remarkable mystery center. A short distance from the Temple stand the remnants of St. John’s Basilica, marking the place where the Apostle John wrote his Gospel. Nearby are the extensive remnants of the Roman city of Ephesus and, above these ruins, stands the house thought to be the last home of Mary, mother of Jesus. After a day in Selcuk/Ephesus, we will travel to Didyma, site of an oracle devoted to Apollo and comparable in influence to Delphi. From there we go on to Miletus and Priene. These ruins are some of the best-preserved and most evocative in the Mediterranean and form a fitting conclusion to our Esoteric Quest.
