This chapter studies a number of ancient travelers to present a clear picture of how usual expectations on travel updated Paul's self-construction. It also tries to study how ancient literatures organized traveling figures. Some of the wanderers that are studied in this chapter are Dionysus, Polyneices, Socrates, and Odysseus. The chapter ends with a section that focuses on the clues from Paul's initial letters that shows the exact role that travel played in his apostolic form of life.

Keywords:   ancient travelers, self-construction, ancient literatures, traveling figures, Dionysus, Polyneices, Socrates, Odysseus, apostolic, form of life
