The former French Catholic diocese of Saint-Pons-de-Thomières existed from 1317[1] until the French Revolution. Its see at Saint-Pons-de-Thomières in southern France is in the modern department of Hérault. There was the Abbey of St-Pons, founded in 936 by Raymond, Count of Toulouse, who brought there the monks of St-Géraud d'Aurillac.[2]

By the Concordat of 1801, the territory of the diocese was added to that of the archdiocese of Montpellier.
