The Macedonian town of Philippi was one of the most important sites in early Christianity, with a congregation who received advice and assistance from St Paul himself. Verhoef uses the evidence of biblical texts and archaeological discoveries, especially the inscriptions found in the town and its territory, to build up a picture of the Christian community there from the time of Paul's first visit in the middle of the first century CE to the sixth century.
