Sardis Turkey Ancient City Seven Churches of Revelation

Sardis – was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Lydia, one of the important cities of the Persian Empire, the seat of a Seleucid Satrap,  and the metropolis of the province Lydia in later Roman and Byzantine times. As one of the seven churches of Asia, it was addressed in the Book of Revelation in the New Testament, in terms which seem to imply that its church members did not finish what they started, that they were about image and not substance.

Sardis Gymnasium – The most imposing building of Roman Sardis is the courtyard of the Bath-Gymnasium complex. The two-story colonnaded space known as the Marble Court was originally separate from the baths and was used for special ceremonies. An inscription on the first story (with red-painted letters) dedicates this space to the Roman Imperial family and records that the hall was gilded by the city and two ladies of consular rank the sarcophagus of one of these ladies, Claudia Antonina Sabina, was found at Sardis and is in the Istanbul Archaeological Museum.

Sardis Church “Church M” was a small, fourth-century mortuary chapel and the earliest extant Christian church at Sardis built on the abandoned grounds of the Hellenistic Greek Temple of Artemis on the Acropolis. Its close proximity to Church EA suggests an attempt at urban expansion through the creation of a ‘Christian quarter’ outside the walls of Sardis.
