Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

Caloe

A titular see of Asia Minor

Caloe, a titular see of Asia Minor, mentioned as Kaloe and Keloue in inscriptions of the third century, Kalose in Hierocles’ “Synecdemos” (660); as Kalloe, Kaloe, and even Kolone in Parthey’s “Notitiae episcopatuum”, where it figures from the sixth to the twelfth or thirteenth century. Caine must be identified with the modern village of Kills, Keles, or Kelas, a nahie in the vilayet of Smyrna, to the southwest of Ala-Shehir (ancient Philadelphia), in the upper valley of the Kutchuk-Menderes (Caystrus). There was in Lydia a Lake Koloe, near which the tombs of the Lydian kings and the temple of Artemis Koloene stood. According to Lequien, the titular see took its name from this locality; but Lequien’s view is inconsistent with the position assigned to Caloe by the “Notitiae episcopatuum” as a suffragan see of Ephesus.
