Diocese of Brechin
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The pre-Reformation Diocese of Brechin or Diocese of Angus was one of the thirteen historical dioceses of Scotland. The diocese was believed to have been founded by Bishop Samson in 1153, and based at the cathedral in Brechin, Angus. At the Reformation, the cathedral, churches and jurisdiction of the diocese were transferred to the Church of Scotland, its line of episcopacy having been continued without breaks by the Scottish Episcopal Church, which separated from the Church of Scotland in 1690.
