A church which dates to the early Fourth Century has been dug up by archaeologists in Leodicea, Turkey.

From the article:
Quote
The head of expedition, Celal Simsek thinks that the church was built in AD 313 after the edict of Milan.

IIRC when I visited Turkey a couple years ago Laodicea was a Tell. Good to know they're developing the site.

Assuming I'm not confusing it with another site. Cheesy

Leodicea

That named after Pope Leo?

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

I was mistaken on the site. It isn't a tell.

Although I thought they'd already found a church.
