The Italian Catholic diocese of Bitonto, in Apulia, had a short independent existence from 1982 to 1986. In the latter year it was united into the Archdiocese of Bari, forming the Archdiocese of Bari-Bitonto.[1] Before 1982 it was united into the diocese of Ruvo e Bitonto, a combination that existed from 1818.[2]


Bishop Anderano (about 734) belonged either to Bitonto or the diocese of Bisignano; Arnolfo (1087) was the first undoubted Bishop of Bitonto. Other bishops include:
