Euroea in Phoenicia


Euroea in Phoenicia

:"This is not Euroea in Epiro (titular see)"

Euroea in Phoenicia (Italian Eurea di Fenicia) is a Catholic titular see, until 1935 called Evaria (Euaria, Euroea). [ [http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/diocese/d2e52.html "Catholic Hierarchy" page] , [http://www.gcatholic.com/dioceses/data/titE.htm] ]

It was originally a diocese in Phoenicia Libani. [Joseph Bingham, "Origines ecclesiasticæ; or, The antiquities of the Christian Church" (1834), p. 307.] It is today El Hawârin, north of Karyatein and on the road from Damascus to Palmyra. There are ruins of a Roman castellum and of a basilica.

Euaria (Hawârin) is to be distinguished from Hauara or Havara, another titular see in Palaestina Tertia, south of Petra.

History

The true name of this city seems to have been Hawârin; as such it appears in a Syriac inscription of the fourth to the sixth century. According to Ptolemy [V, xiv.] it was situated in the Palmyrene province. Georgius Cyprius calls it Euarios or Justinianopolis.

The "Notitiae episcopatuum" of the Patriarchate of Antioch (sixth century) gives it as a suffragan see of the archdiocese of Damascus. [See Echos d'Orient, X (1907), 145.] One of its bishops, Thomas, is known in 451; there is some uncertainty about another, John, who lived a little later [Lequien, "Oriens christianus", II, 847.] .
