Pauline Chronology according to two approches' types

This table is provided by Raymond E. Brown in his book: An Introduction to the New Testament. New-Haven-London: Yale University Press, 1997.

Note: The traditional chronology with its main dates is presented in bold type; the revisionist chronology is presented in italics. Some cities are underlined to indicate a long stay of Paul. Parentheses refer to Paul's letters with their abbreviated titles and probable dates. A question mark follows a title to indicate a possible but less plausible alternative dating
