The Diocese of Pozzuoli (Latin: Dioecesis Puteolanus) is a Roman Catholic bishopric in Campania, southern Italy. It is a suffragan of the Metropolitan Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Naples,  like its other neighbor dioceses, Aversa and Ischia.
It was founded around 100 AD.
In 1207, it gained territory from the suppressed Diocese of Cuma (Italy).
It also has a Pro-Cathedral in Pozzuoli, Procattedrale di Santa Maria della Consolazione, devoted to Our Lady of Consolation, and a ruined former cathedral, also in Pozzuoli, which was devoted to regional saint S. Maximo di Cuma.
(incomplete) The bishops St. Celsus and St. Joannes did govern the diocese before the fourth century. In the 4th century the bishop of this see was Florentius, against whom Pope Damasus was compelled to seek the assistance of the emperors. Bishop St. Theodorus died in 435; Julianus was pontifical legate to the Robber Council of Ephesus in 449. The Bishop Stephanus, whom Cappelletti names at this period, should be referred to the 7th century, or later.
