About

Ioannis E. Konstas
was born in Greece in 1968. Although a passion for photography burst into his life at the age of twelve, he first studied High-Energy Physics in Freiburg, Germany earning a Master's degree relating to the Big Bang at CERN in Switzerland, before he started preferring Photons over Quarks.
He is also a graduate of A.I.B.I. (the Athens branch of Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, Texas) and owns a Master's degree on the Hebrew Scriptures (MRS). His deep and dedicated interest in the writings of the Apostle Paul led him to study, explore and photograph Pauline & other related sites in the Mediterranean Lands, since 1994.

Work:
  • Co-founder and teacher of a Bible School with emphasis on the Patristic writings. 
  • Over 80 lectures on Pauline and related subjects.
  • His studies and articles have triggered the restoration and display of the significant (but for 100 years neglected) Gallio inscription by the Greek ministry of Culture. (The inscription is critical for the establishment of an absolute Pauline chronology. It is exhibited now in the new Delphi museum, after exiting the charioteer's room). 
  • Guide of VIPs (like Charlie Duke) to the Greek Pauline Sites.
  •  Open University lecturer on Patristic Psychotherapy.

Internet presence:
With material from previous publications, recent and ongoing trips, Ioannis published in 2022 a new extended version of this geographical and photographic study blog. This blog presents all of Paul's journeys and routes through the recorded and most importantly through the unrecorded cities located along the Roman roads or ancient paths he used. Additionally, it presents a detailed Harmony Chart that contains all events of the life and journeys of Paul.
