Paul upon Mars Hill. Notes Number of performers: 1. The apostle, however, was not here on his trial, but to expound more fully what he had thrown out in broken conversations in the Agora. Matthew Poole's Commentary The city of Athens was divided into five wards, or parts; one of which was called Areopagus, from the temple of Mars, which stood upon a hill in it: nigh unto which temple, or in some part of it, was their chiefest court kept; and here they judged of all religious affairs: here they condemned Diagoras, Protagoras, and Socrates; and hither they bring Paul, though rather to inquire of him there being the resort of learned men concerning his doctrine, than to condemn him for it.
Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible And they took him, Not that they laid hands on him, and carried him away by violence, as a derider of their gods, and an introducer of new ones, in order to punish him; but they invited him to go with them, and they took him along with them in a friendly manner, and had him to a more convenient place for preaching and disputation, and where were many learned men to hear and judge of his doctrine; and this appears from their desire to hear what his doctrine was, and from his quiet departure, after he had ended his discourse: and brought him unto Areopagus.
The Arabic version seems to understand this of a person, rendering it, "and brought him to the most skilful, and the judge of the doctors"; to be heard and examined before him, about the doctrine he preached, who was most capable of judging concerning it; and this might be Dionysius, who is called the Areopagite, and was converted by the apostle, Acts The Ethiopic version renders it, "they brought him to the house of their god"; to one of their idols' temple, the temple of Mars, which is not much amiss; for we are told g , that Areopagus was a street in Athens, in which was the temple of Mars, from whence it had its name; but the Syriac version renders it best of all, "they brought him to the house of judgment, or "court of judicature", which is called Areopagus"; and so it is called "Martium judicium", or Mars's "court of judicature", by Apuleius h , and "Martis curia", or the "court of Mars", by Juvenal i , for it was a court where causes were tried, and the most ancient one with the Athenians, being instituted by Cerops, their first king; and is thought to be near as ancient, if not fully as ancient, yea, as more ancient than the sanhedrim, or the court of seventy elders, appointed by Moses among the Jews.
It was called Areopagus, because Ares, or Mars, was the first that was judged there k.
Paul upon Mars Hill Sheet Music by Malcolm Williamson
The case was this, Alcippe, the daughter of Mars, being ravished by Habirrhothius, the son of Neptune, and caught by Mars in the very fact, was killed by him; upon which Neptune arraigned Mars for the murder, and tried him in this place, by a jury of twelve deities, by whom he was acquitted l. Hither Paul was brought, not to be tried in a legal manner; for it does not appear that any charge was exhibited against him, or any legal process carried on, only an inquiry was made about his doctrine, and that only to gratify their curiosity: saying, may we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?
Acts , Acts Adroitly confiding politeness. Acts proves that a violent seizure and carrying away to judicial examination is not indicated, as Adami see in Wolf and others imagined, but that the object in view was simply to satisfy the curiosity of the people flocking to the Areopagus. And this is evinced by the whole proceedings, which show no trace of a judicial process, ending as they did partly with ridicule and partly with polite dismissal Acts , after which Paul departed unhindered.
Besides, the Athenians were very indulgent to the introduction of foreign, particularly Oriental, worships Strabo, x. To this the assertion of Josephus, c. And certainly Paul, as the wisdom of his speech Acts ff. Notwithstanding, Baur and Zeller have again insisted on a judicial process in the Areopagus—alleging that the legend of Dionysius the Areopagite, as the first bishop of Athens Eus.

Paul , p. Acts , Acts , Acts , Acts —a regular Lucan preposition in this sense— cf. But it does not therefore follow that a regular trial was instituted, as Chrys. But the form of expression certainly does seem to indicate that Paul was taken not to the Hill of Mars, as is generally held, but before a court or council. Cicero, Ad Atticum , i. Deorum , ii. Moreover, there is good reason to believe that the council, although deriving its name from the hill, did not always meet on the hill, and also that it had the power of taking official action in questions bearing upon public teaching in the city cf.
