Laodicea - sacred destinations (sitios de interés)

Descripción del sitio


Laodicea was an ancient city in western Turkey, founded by Seleucid King Antiochus II in honor of his wife, Laodice. It became a prosperous Roman market town on the trade route from the East, famous for its woolen and cotton cloths. Laodicea became an early center of Christianity and one of the Seven Churches of Revelation. In the 4th century, Apollinaris of Laodicea proposed the theory later called Apollinarianism, which was considered heretical by the Catholic Church.

A large earthquake destroyed Laodicea and it has never been rebuilt. What remains of the ancient city are a stadium, sarcophagi, an amphitheatre, an odeon, a cistern and an aqueduct.
