Although it is to the surprise to our great Cappadocian host, Hasan, the area now full of waddling Western coach parties was one of the first areas of Christianity. Paul of Tarsus passed this way several times.
The Cappadocian Fathers of the 4th century were to give to early Christian much of its philosophy including the Doctrine of the Trinity. It is remarkable how much of this fragile fabric has survived – over 1600 years.
Thanks to Hasan – we would have seen none of it without him.
