Summary

In the Steps of St. Paul Summary

In the Steps of St. Paul by H. V. Morton

In the early 1930s, H.V. Morton retraced the steps of St Paul from his birthplace at Tarsus to the scene of his martyrdom in Rome. 'The modern traveller who takes the Acts of the Apostles as his guide-book, as I have done,' writes Morton in his Introduction, 'journeys into a part of the world which once enjoyed the unity of the Roman Empire and is now divided among many nations.' But, as his remarkable book reveals, the essential nature of the sites he visited has not altered. Alive with discovery, anecdote and humour this is at once travelogue and history of the highest order. From Syria through Turkey, Macedonia, Greece, Rhodes, Malta and Italy, 'In the Steps of St Paul' is an outstanding guide for any traveller, and the vivid, resonant account of a very personal pilgrimage. 'In the Steps of St Paul' is the second volume in Morton's famous trilogy, which also includes 'In the Steps of the Master' and 'Through Lands of the Bible'.

In the Steps of St. Paul Reviews

'The much-loved master of his genre, often imitated but never matched. His books are genuine classics.' Jan Morris

About H. V. Morton

H. V. Morton (1892-1979) was one of the most popular travel writers of his time. After a brief period of military service he established a career as a journalist and became a reporter for both Fleet Street's The Daily Express and The Daily Herald. H. V. Morton's debut as an author came in 1927 with 'In Search of England', a book that became a best seller. His genial writing style endeared him to the countless readers of the books he wrote about his travels around the British Isles, Spain, Italy and the Middle East between 1927 and 1950. In 1941 H. V. Morton accompanied the delegation which travelled to Newfoundland for the meeting between President Roosevelt and Winston Churchill which established the Allied policy for post Second World War Europe, known as the Atlantic Charter. Morton was famously present at the opening of Tutankhamun's tomb by archaeologist Howard Carter and his team in 1922. After the Second World War, H. V. Morton emigrated to South Africa where he lived until his death in 1979.
