Date of Philippians

Regardless of the literary unity of the letter, scholars agree that this material was compiled into the Epistle to the Philippians in Greek in the mid first century CE.  These letters could have been written from Ephesus in 52–55 or Caesarea Maritima in 57–59, but the most likely city is Rome, around 62 CE or about 10 years after Paul’s first visit to Philippi.
