History

Our journey, on one hand, followed the traces of the Third Crusade and, on the other hand, the trails of Apostle Paul. One cannot hike through all these countries from Austria to Israel/Palestine without coming into contact with history at every turn.

 

In Kosovo on Blackbird’s Field, for instance, the place where that decisive battle between the Serbs and the Ottomans took place in 1389 which subsequently influenced the course of European history; Iconium in the Taurus Mountains, where the army of the Third Crusade under Emperor Friedrich I, also called Barbarossa, was almost completely annihilated in 1190; the Trojan War, where the “invulnerable” Achilles met his death and the world-famous Trojan Horse stands; Antioch on the Orontes, where the oldest Christian church on Earth is located and where the apostles Peter, Paul and Barnabas are said to have gathered with the still-young Christian community.

 

Philippi, Troy, Assos, Ephesus, Pergamum, Laodicea, Tarsus, Palmyra, Bosra and Petra are the sonorous names; the excavations and the remains of ancient cities are impressive.
