 Mac·e·do·nia /ˌmæsəˈdoniə, njə/

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: landlocked republic on the Balkan Peninsula; achieved
           independence from Yugoslavia in 1991
      2: the ancient kingdom of Philip II and Alexander the Great in
         the southeastern Balkans that is now divided among modern
         Macedonia and Greece and Bulgaria [syn: Macedon, Makedonija]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    in New Testament times, was a Roman province lying north of
    Greece. It was governed by a propraetor with the title of
    proconsul. Paul was summoned by the vision of the "man of
    Macedonia" to preach the gospel there (Acts 16:9). Frequent
    allusion is made to this event (18:5; 19:21; Rom. 15:26; 2 Cor.
    1:16; 11:9; Phil. 4:15). The history of Paul's first journey
    through Macedonia is given in detail in Acts 16:10-17:15. At the
    close of this journey he returned from Corinth to Syria. He
    again passed through this country (20:1-6), although the details
    of the route are not given. After many years he probably visited
    it for a third time (Phil. 2:24; 1 Tim. 1:3). The first convert
    made by Paul in Europe was (Acts 16:13-15) Lydia (q.v.), a
    "seller of purple," residing in Philippi, the chief city of the
    eastern division of Macedonia.
