 Bithynia
    a province in Asia Minor, to the south of the Euxine and
    Propontis. Christian congregations were here formed at an early
    time (1 Pet. 1:1). Paul was prevented by the Spirit from
    entering this province (Acts 16:7). It is noted in church
    history as the province ruled over by Pliny as Roman proconsul,
    who was perplexed as to the course he should take with the
    numerous Christians brought before his tribunal on account of
    their profession of Christianity and their conduct, and wrote to
    Trajan, the emperor, for instructions (A.D. 107).
