World War I had just begun when the freighter "Medina" was launched at
Newport News on August 14th, 1914. The ship was in service until 1948 and

company purchased the then already "vintage" "Medina" and rebuilt her as the
passenger ship "Roma". But the ship's owners went bankrupt a few years later
and in 1952, Italian shipping company Costa acquired the ship and turned it
into the deluxe "Franca C". And when - 25 years later - Costa decided to            Sunset at Promthep Cape Phuket
retire the ship it was once again not bought by the breakers but by "Gute
Bücher für Alle e.V." ("Good books for all"), a Christian organization based in
Germany. The ship was renamed "Doulos" (Greek for "Servant"). Since then,
the former "Medina" has visited more than 500 ports, offering books, mainly
for those who normally do not have access to them. The onboard book store
has some 4.000 different titles (approx. 500,000 books can be stored on
board in total), from Christian literature to novels and university textbooks.
The crew aboard M/V "Doulos" is made up of volunteers who are not paid
but who carry all expenses themselves.
