Cerenzia is a and comune town with a population of 1000 people in the province of Crotone, in Calabria, Italy.
History [ edit ]
As part of a reorganization of the
dioceses of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, Pope Pius VII in 1818 incorporated the territory of the diocese of Cerenza, which had been founded in the 10th century, into that of the diocese of Cariati. Vincenzio d'Avino, [1 ] [2 ] [3 ] No longer a residential bishopric, Cerenzia is today listed by the [4 ] Catholic Church as a titular see. [5 ]
As is customary, the bull referred to the see in adjectival form, and called it
ecclesia Geruntina, suggesting as the Latin substantive (noun) form: Geruntia. The Annuario Pontificio gives Pumentum as the Latin substantive form and Cerenza, rather than Cerenzia, as the Italian form, but indicates Geruntinus as the Latin adjective.
Economy [ edit ]
Cerenzia relies on the production of
oil, wine, cereals, citruses, and the intense breeding of the cattle.
