Thmuis , a titular see in Augustamnica Prima, suffragan of Pelusium; a city of Lower Egypt, on the canal east of the Nile, between its Tanitic and Mendesian branches. Herodotus (II, 166) gives it as the capital of a nome bearing its name, and Ptolemy as that of the Mendesian nome. In the fourth century it was still important, having its own administration and being exempt from the jurisdiction of the Prefect of Alexandria. It was in existence at the time of the Arabian conquest, and was later called Al-Mourad or Al-Mouradeh; it must have disappeared after the Turkish conquest. Its ruins are at Tell el-Meï, about five miles northwest of Senbelaouïn, a station on the railway from Zagazig to Mansoàrah. Le Quien ("Oriens Christ.", II, 537) names nine bishops of Thmuis, the last three being Monophysites of the Middle Ages. The others are St. Phileas, martyr (in the Martyrology, February 4); St. Donatus, his successor, martyr; Liberius (not Caius), at the Council of Nicae in 325; St. Serapion, d. shortly before 360, the author of various works, in part preserved; Ptolemaeus, at the Council of Seleucia (359); Aristobulus, at the Council of Ephesus (431).

"Build schoolhouses then for the religious education of your children as the best protest against a system of education from which religion has been excluded by law."
-- Bernard J. McQuaid, Bishop of the Diocese of Rochester; in firm command to his flock, after the failure of the State to remedy the injustice to Catholic parents who were forced to pay education taxes to support public schools detrimental to their faith.
