Holman Bible Dictionary
Herod's praetorium in Caesarea (Acts 23:35 NAS, RSV) served as the residence of the Roman govenor Felix. Paul's confidence that his imprisonment had publicized the Christian cause “in the whole praetorium” ( Philippians 1:13 ) can refer to the whole palace (KJV; NAS and RSV margins) or to the praetorian guard. See Praetorian Guard .
