Map of the Spread of Christianity

Pepuza, Phrygia

Pepuza was the center of Montanist heretical movement, which believed the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21) was soon to descend on the Earth at the little town. The location of Pepuza has been sought by travelers in Asia Minor for nearly a hundred years. The most recent (1980) investigator, August Strobel, is convinced that it lay somewhere in or near the upland plain of Kirbasan south of Usak, north-west of Kinar, and a little to the north of the upper Mæander.
