The Ancient Diocese of Vaison was a Roman Catholic diocese in France, suppressed in 1801.[1]

History[edit]

St. Albinus (d. 262) was incorrectly placed by the Carthusian Polycarpe de la Rivière among the bishops of Vaison. The oldest known bishop of the see is Daphnus, who assisted at the Council of Arles in 314.

Others were St. Quinidius (Quenin, 556-79), who valiantly resisted the claims of the patrician Mummolus, conqueror of the Lombards; Joseph-Marie de Suares (1633–66), who died in Rome while filling the office of librarian of the Vatican, and who left numerous works.

St. Rusticala (b. at Vaison, 551; d. 628) was abbess of the monastery of St. Caesarius at Arles.

William Chisholme (II), former bishop of Dunblane, became bishop of Vaison-la-Romaine in 1566 or 1569.

Two rather important councils as regards Gallican ecclesiastical discipline were held at Vaison in 442 and 529, the latter under the presidency of St. Caesarius.

The bishopric was suppressed by the Napoleonic Concordat of 1801, and its territory included in the diocese of Avignon and diocese of Valence.
