On Patmos Island, the Grotto where John the Disciple lived is now preserved by the Greek Orthodox Church. It is believed to be the site of John’s apocalyptic revelations.
Patmos is governed by the Greeks even though it is only about 30 miles from the coast of Turkey.
Students, faculty and alumni from Palm Beach Atlantic University are in Istanbul, Turkey for a tour of historical sites May 14 – May 25, 2009. They are on Honors Study Travel program.
