The Roman Catholic diocese of Lutsk was first erected in the 13th century as the diocese of Luceoria o Łuck. After the victory of Napoleon, the diocese was united with the diocese of Zytomir and Zytomirsk, into the diocese of Lutzk, Zhitomir and Kamenetz.[1] Finally, in 1925, the diocese of Lutsk was restored and the Diocese of Zytomir was split off.[2]
