The Archbishop of Nazareth was one of the major suffragans of the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem during the crusades.

After capturing Nazareth, the leaders of the First Crusade moved there the metropolitan see of Scythopolis, while the Greek Orthodox continued to maintain two separate dioceses. Nazareth thus became a Latin Church archdiocese. Among its suffragans were the bishop of Tiberias and the abbot of Mount Tabor.

Following the Muslim conquest in the Holy Land, Archbishop of Nazareth took refuge in Barletta (Italy), and moved permanently there in 1327. It began the long line of archbishops of Nazareth residents in Barletta.

On June 27, 1818, with the bull De ulteriori of Pope Pius VII, the Archdiocese of Nazareth was suppressed.

On 22 October 1828, with the Bull Multis quidem of Pope Leo XII the title of Archbishop of Nazareth was granted to the Archbishops of Trani. Subsequently, the title passed to the archbishops of Barletta and Trani (1860) and then to the Archbishops of Trani-Barletta-Bisceglie (1986).
