Resource Toolbox

Titular see, suffragan of Antinoë in Thebais Prima. Le Quien (Oriens christ., II, 611) mentions two of its bishops: Arsinthius in 404; Eulogius at the Council of Ephesus in 431. The monks sometimes sought refuge there during incursions of the barbarian Maziks (Cotelier, "Ecclesiæ græcæ monumenta", I, 393). John Moschus went there at the beginning of the seventh century (Pratum spirituale, LIV, CXIV). There is frequent mention of this town in Christian Coptic literature. The present village of Tarraneh in the Province of Beherah replaces Terenuthis, the ruins of which lie about a mile and a quarter to the west. It has 1330 inhabitants. About nine and a quarter miles distant are the Lakes of Nitria and Scetis, near which were the lauras of these names.
