The Phoenicians and the dangers inherent to sailing on the Mediterranean Sea in antiquity : research articleSource: Ekklesiastikos Pharos 95, pp 319 –331 (2013)More Less
The expression 'Pillars of Hercules', as well as 'Scylla and Charybdis' were used by some authors to indicate unworldly, mythological places. Did those waterways really exist or were they just part of the imagination of Homer, the Greek poet? In Greek mythology these sea straits were described as very dangerous. This study investigates the Phoenician trade routes in the Mediterranean and the sort of difficulties they possibly encountered as seafarers. Phoenician shipwrecks found off the coast near Ashkelon and Spain (and other shipwrecks in the Mediterranean) as well as satellite images of the sea straits provide valuable information.

Studies on gender, race and sexuality have provided us with valuable insights into the study of disability, a field which has started to draw the attention of many scholars in varying fields. Various forms of disability were common occurrences in the ancient world and thus also in Chrysostom's world. When studying disability in the ancient world, one should be careful not to make anachronistic assumptions about disability, and should not approach the subject from a modern perspective or use modern medical categories of impairment to discuss the disabilities of the ancients. In this paper we will examine Chrysostom's views on disability and how he chose to deal with the theological questions raised by disability.
