Where St Nicholas lived (if he did) – a paper on the city of Myra

A correspondent draws my attention to a paper by Dr Engin Akyürek, Myra: the city of St. Nicholas, which is online at Academia.edu here.  Those who have followed the posts about Nicholas of Myra may find it interesting and useful, as the author discusses the physical layout of the ancient city.  That is something known to few of us, so useful.

  1. Thank you! This looks very interesting and useful indeed!

    I might mention that, thanks to the “Sources” in Sévérien Salaville’s 1911 Catholic Encyclopedia article on “Myra”, I have begun enjoyably to make the acquaintance of Charles Fellows, An Account of the Discoveries in Lycia, being a journal kept during a second excursion in Asia Minor (1841) and T.A.B. Spratt & Edward Forbes, Travels in Lycia, Milyas, and the Cibyratis (1847), 2 vols., both variously scanned in Internet Archive.
