Transcript wnii TBI BXTCM CHUICOT8 Of Asia MINOR. 41 CITY OF THYATIR \. The notice of Thyatira in profane history is brief. It is enumerated as one of the cities of Lydia, but not distinguished by any circumstances that would confer upon it celebrity among the Greek free cities of t; n the all-conquering Romans possessed themselves of Asia, it fell under their power, and is mentioned by their hi rians. Livy says, Antiochus collected his forces at Thyatira, when he marched aga^ their invading legions ; he was defeated at Magnesia, and Thyatira with all the surrounding territories merged into ui province. When Christianity began to expand itself, the inhabitants of this place early evinced a disposition to embrace its new doctrine-. St Paul, in hi- travel in Greece, met at Philippi a woman of Thyatira: she was COl ale of purple, either the dye or the dyed cloth, for which the region in which her city was situated was then famous. It was extracted from the shell-fish aboundim: on the sea-coasts, and was in extensive demand as an article of coinni. >ns. It was selected by the Jews for the curtains of the taber: of the priests. Among Gentiles, the Chaldeans clothed their idols, and the Persians their great men, in purple; for Daniel was honoured with a robe of that colour when interpr lshazzar's dream, and Mordecai was arrayed in it when he wis raised to the rank of minister of s* Among the Romans, it was the hue most pn shed their kings and emperors from the time ofTullttS Ilostilir.s to AugUStUJ , It marked the difference between the patrician and the kni vouth and the child; the temples of the gods, and the triumphs of nmr; rued with it. It was the colour most prized and honoured both in the Baal and the West of the ancient world. Lydia, the vender o^i this precious dve in Europe, which was imported from her own country, when she heard Paul expound the doctrines i • at once embraced them. She was baptized by the apostle, who. at her entre v her house his abode while he remained at Philippi. It is probable that e may have facilitated the reception of the gospel at Thyatira among the friends and commercial connexions of Lydia. A congregation was immediately after formed there, and the fourth church of the Apocalypse established. It was eulogised by the 1 isl for the good works of the new converts ; their charity, their patience, their tl'slaw. and all charac by which the primitive Christians were distinguished; but tl h qualiti alloyed by the frailties of a corrupt nature, from which not even the purest Christian state was exempt. A woman named J< lemMed that infamous one of the Old Testament, influenced and seduced them to evil: and, to reclaim them from their sinful practices, St John seal them a solemn warning in his divine epistle to the Asiatic churches: but it dees not appear with what success, for no further notice '2.
