Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Barce was an ancient Greek colony and later Roman, Byzantine, city in North Africa. It occupied the coastal area of what is modern day Libya. As a Greek city it was part of the Cyrenaican Pentapolis along with the city of Cyrene itself. According to most archeologists, it was situated at Al Marj, but according to Alexander Graham at Tolmeitha (Ptolemais). The city's name, Arabized as Barqah, came to refer to the former state and province of Cyrenaica. Bark was founded by Greek colonists in the 7th century BCE. Early Christianity spread to the Pentapolis of North Africa from Egypt. Synesius of Cyrene (370-414), bishop of Ptolemais, received his instruction at Alexandria in both the Catechetical School and the Museion, and he entertained a great deal of reverence and affection for Hypatia, the last pagan Neoplatonists, whose classes he had attended. Synesius was raised to the episcopate by Theophilus, patriarch of Alexandria, in 410 A.D. Since the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D.show more
