Abstract: Victor Mallia-Milanes's latest publication is a book about churches and chapels in Malta and Gozo dedicated to St Paul. At a local level, the book represents an excursus of the principal shrines dedicated to St Paul. More importantly, this is the first publication to have put the local cult of St Paul on an international pedestal. The Vatican has now sealed the perennial question whether St Paul was shipwrecked off the coast of Malta or somewhere else in the Mediterranean. For Prof. Mallia-Milanes, there is no doubt (and rightly so) that historically this shipwreck did take place off the shores of our islands. Prof. Mallia-Milanes discusses the shrines linked in popular memory with the saint's stay in Malta.
