The Italian Catholic Diocese of Frosinone-Veroli-Ferentino (Latin: Dioecesis Frusinatensis-Verulana-Ferentina) has existed since 1986. In that year, the Diocese of Ferentino was united into the Diocese of Veroli-Frosinone; which was the name of the historic Diocese of Veroli from 1956. It is immediately subject to the Holy See.[1]

History[edit]

No bishop of Veroli is known before Martinus (743).

Among the bishops were:

  • Agostino (1106) and Faramondo (1160), who had been abbots of Casamari;
  • Giovanni (1223), the restorer of clerical discipline;
  • Ennio Filonardi (1503), who was distinguished in the nunciature;
  • Gerolamo Asteo (1608), a Conventual;
  • Domenico de Zaulis (1690), who restored the cathedral and other churches;
  • Antonio Rossi (1786), who, with his whole chapter, took the oath of allegiance to Napoleon.[2]
