The Italian Roman Catholic Diocese of Cerignola-Ascoli Satriano (Latin: Dioecesis Ceriniolensis-Asculanus Apuliae) in Apulia, has existed under this name since 1986. Its bishop is a suffragan of the Archbishop of Foggia-Bovino. Historically the Diocese of Ascoli Satriano was a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Benevento, and changed its name to Diocese of Ascoli Satriano e Cerignola in 1819.[1][2]

History[edit]

In 969, Ausculum Appulum (now Ascoli Satriano) appears as an episcopal city amongst the suffragan sees of Beneventum, but the first bishop of whom we have any knowledge is Maurus, present at the consecration of the Church of St. Angelo at Volturno (1059). Cerignola on account of its relative importance, may have been formerly a diocese, but history is silent in the matter; Carinola is a titular see,[3] but Carinola is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Caserta in the Italian region of Campania. When Pope Pius VII reorganized the ecclesiastical provinces of the Kingdom of Naples, on the occasion of the Concordat (16 February 1818) with Ferdinand I, King of the two Sicilies, he gave Cerignola its episcopal dignity and united it aeque principaliter to the Diocese of Ascoli Satriano.[4]
