Ancyra, the modern ANGORA, a titular see of Galatia in Asia Minor, suffragan of Laodicea. It was said to have been founded by Midas, was a chief place of the Gallic conquerors of Asia Minor (c. 277, B.C.), and in imperial times a center of great commercial importance. It is also famous for the official record of the Acts of Augustus, known as the "Monumentum Ancyranum", an inscription cut, in marble on the walls of an ancient temple, several times copied and edited since the sixteenth century. The ruins of Ancyra furnish today valuable bas-reliefs, inscriptions, and other architectural fragments. Its episcopal list is given in Gams, "Series episc. Eccl. oath."; also that of another Ancyra in Phrygia Pacatiana.

"It is the peculiarity of progress for a thing to be developed in itself; and the peculiarity of change, for a thing to be altered from what it was into something else."
-- Vincent of Lerins, Saint, noting the essential difference between development and alteration of the deposit of faith, over 1,000 years before Protestantism radically altered the face of Christianity. (Commonitorium, I, 23; see P.L., L). (see "Science and the Church")
