If not, can it be brought on topic?

Who planted the assembly in Rome to whom Paul wrote "Romans"?

The help center clearly states that questions about historical context (with regards to a particular text) are on topic.

In my view, the close votes are a symptom of an unfortunate formulation of the close reason: the close reason is more restrictive than the help center. For discussion, see: Can we reformulate the "Specific Bible passage" close reason?

    The question fails the "particular text" qualification, because it's really got nothing to do with Rom 1:10, and could be equally asked about any other verse in the NT which mentions Rome.

  • @curiousdannii it relates to Romans as a whole.
