Abstract: Published as part of the Lifestyle & Culture segment, the article discusses the “Pauline Cult” based on Saint Paul the Apostle and his shipwreck in 60 A.D. With the formation of the first Christian community, the following and devotion for the Saint and the grotto became widespread. Father Duncan tells us about how Saint Paul the Apostle came to be an important model for the Maltese Church and navigates through the various localities that commemorate his story through parishes, altars, paintings, sculptures and sites. It also provides good insight to the numerous legends centering around his arrival in Malta.
