Antalya and Perge were visited by Saint Paul and Saint Barnabas on their first journey.”After this Paul and his companions took ship from Paphos and made for Perge in Pamphylia;here John left them,and went back to Jerusalem.They passed from Perge,and reached Pisidian Antioch,where they went and took their seats in the synagogue on the Sabbath day”.(Acts13,13 and 14)”They preached the word of the Lord in Perge,and went down to Attalia (Antalya),taking ship there for Antioch”.(Acts14,249).It is probable that from the earliest times the city was an important centre for diffusion of Christianity in Pamphylia.Perge was represented at the council of Nicaea in 325 by metropolitan Callinicus and at the council of Ephesus in 431 by one of his successors.
