Online meetup with Ioannis Ziogas: “A Topos of Return: Prespa”

A ‘topos (locus) of Return’ is a place that becomes persistent in one’s memory and body. How is the need for return connected to walking? How is the walking body transformed by return?

Life is travel, the case for the patron saint of walkers

The Vandals are at the gates. Augustine is deadly ill, spending his final days in prayer and repentance. Having coined the phrase "Solvitur ambulando", “it is solved by walking”, perhaps his ambulatory restlessness at the end of his life indirectly saved the city, as the Vandals initially retreated.
