Centuries-old church unearthed in Turkey
« on: May 22, 2011, 01:56:57 PM »
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.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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. :D

Leodicea

That named after Pope Leo?

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

Although I thought they'd already found a church.
