The Italian Catholic Diocese of Lodi (Latin: Dioecesis Laudensis) has existed since the fourth century, and is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Milan.[2][3] In 2013 in the diocese of Lodi there was one priest for every 1,337 Catholics.

History[edit]

Under Diocletian, according to the local legend, 4000 Christians with their bishop, whose name is unknown, were burned alive in their church. St. Bassianus, the patron of the city of Lodi, was certainly bishop in 378.[4]
