Apostle Paul is one of the most influential figures of early Christianity and patron saint of our house. He writes in his letter to the Corinthians:
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received. 1 Cor 15:3
If you come to Jerusalem as a pilgrim or are simply interested in the world of Jesus and the Judaism of his time, we would like to offer you the opportunity to explore the biblical and religious traditions, through impulses, the presentation of the texts or simply in conversation. We are happy to help you with contacts and information to experience the Holy Places individually.
We also support you with advice and action to discover the fascinating cultural and religious history of Jerusalem and the traditions of the three Abrahamic religions.
Places and Walks in the Holy City
We invite our guests to get to know the religious and cultural history of Jerusalem on individual tours in a small group (depending on request and possibility).
This page introduces you to places in the Holy City and ways to discover them. Additional information is available in Paulus-Haus.
Encounter and Dialogue (for groups)
For a better understanding, getting to know each other is an essential prerequisite. Mutual appreciation can be a solid basis for dealing with one's own and foreign cultural values, also with different religious traditions. In Paulus-Haus we offer the opportunity to meet and get to know representatives of Judaism and Islam, Christian Churches and groups, but also people from Israeli and Palestinian society. Please do not hesitate to contact us, best in advance of your stay.
Our Reading Area
Here you will find general and scholarly literature on the archaeology, history and culture of Jerusalem, the history of Israel, the Bible, the Holy Land, Judaism and Islam, both presentations and source texts. You can calmly immerse yourself in the fascinating world that you will encounter in front of the doors of Paulus-Haus.
