Biblical, Flourished circa A.D. 40, Corinth, Greece
Phoebe is mentioned in Paul's Epistle to the Romans (circa A.D. 56), a discourse in the form of a letter which is now included in the New Testament. Some biblical scholars believe Phoebe carried the letter to Rome. Paul named Phoebe a deaconess, or religious servant, of an early Christian church in Corinth, but little else is known about her life.
