From there we drove to the ruins of Nikopolis ad Istrum that is on the Danube. This is the cardo, the main street.
What made walking the site stunning was not only the beauty of the ruins and knowing so much more needs to be excavated, but also that this was the home of the translation project of Ulfilas.
Walking down the old Roman road, I kept thinking how exceptional is human creativity, a creativity of men like Ulfilas who apply their intellects to advance the Gospel. I looked up and saw a sign sbout preserving our common European cultural heritage. Oftentimes Americans forget that we have received a European culture from which our American experiment was born. In the world today where movements like ISIS are destroying our legacy, it is a good thing to affirm our legacy and rejoice in that legacy.
