Although the Acts of Titus never reached (or even claimed) canonical status, it would be wrong to describe them as »apocryphal« in the sense of »hidden« or »secret.« Instead, this text is important for the formation of the church of Crete's identity as an apostolic foundation. It both creates the story of its foundation by the »apostle« Titus and binds the memories of this past to both rituals and material culture. In this way it transforms parts of Crete into a »landscape of memories.«
