     Catholic_Encyclopedia Ramatha
    A titular see in Palestine, suppressed in 1884 by the Roman Curia. It was never an episcopal see properly so called, but, in the Middle Ages, the crusaders established the Diocese of Lydda and Rama, the titular of which was generally called Bishop of Rama, i.e. of Ramlet, a town near Lydda, but more populous than the latter. Later this was forgotten and there was a titular see of Lydda, as well as of Rama or Ramatha; the mistake has been discovered and rectified (see Lydda).
