??But this is an article about a text not a saint per se - and quite an important text.--Docg 21:09, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
More is needed on the cult of Thecla and other references- but his hopefully is an acceptable start. This is my first attempt at a stub - so I'd appreciate critical comments.--Doc Glasgow 11:30, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC) Can anyone find a picture - perhaps an icon?
Someone keeps changing the references to Tryphaena to Antonia Tryphaena and hyperlinking. This factually incorrect. The story does not refer to Antonia Tryphaena but simply speaks of "Tryphaena". Whether the literary character in the story is intended by the author to be identified with the historical figure of Antonia Tryphaena is speculative (or POV), but in any case it remains a literary figure. If you can find the scholarship that deals with any historical information (and I can't lay hands on it) by all means record those views in the article.--Docg 13:51, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
- Perhaps you'll also edit unreferenced material with corrected text, citing your sources.--Wetman 17:07, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
The line "Although probably consciously unhistorical, and certainly overstated, the tale reflects ascetic tendencies, and the experience of persecution in early Christianity," demonstrates a point of view and lacks sources to back it up. I propose it to be deleted. --126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:25, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
