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.

"The gravest obligation requires the acceptance and practice, not of the religion which one may choose, but of that which God prescribes and which is known by certain and indubitable marks to be the only true one."
-- Leo XIII in his Encyclical Immortale Dei (November 1, 1885); on our fundamenal duty; (from the article Religious Toleration)
