Italy

(Acts 18:2; 27:1, 6; Hebrews 13:24), like most geographical names, was differently used at different periods of history. As the power of Rome advanced, nations were successively conquered and added to it till it came to designate the whole country to the south of the Alps. There was constant intercourse between Judea and Italy in the time of the Romans.
