And while Paul was waiting for them in Athens his whole spirit was revolted because the city was full of idols He preached to the Jews in the synagogue and on the markets. But many philosophers, Epicureans and Stoics argued with him. And they said: what does this windbag want? Letter to the Areopagus = (north-west of the Acropolis in Athens seat of the high court) Paul spoke about how much they feared the gods and how they had an altar for an Unknown God and tried to give this altar a meaning with God. Also saying that God does not live in temples. He spoke of the judgment of the world that will come one day and other eschatological themes. Many mocked the resurrection. But some followed Paul including Dionysius and Damaris (a woman).
