The Italian Catholic diocese of Policastro, in Campania, existed until 1986. In that year it was united into the diocese of Teggiano-Policastro. The diocese was a suffragan of the archdiocese of Salerno.[1][2]

History[edit]

Policastro is the ancient Pituntia. Its diocese may be the continuation of the diocese of Buxentum, the first known bishop of which was Rusticus (501), while another, Sabbadius, is mentioned in 649.

San Pietro Poppa Carbone (1079), a Benedictine of Cava de' Tirreni, resigned after governing the diocese for a short while, and was succeeded by Arnaldo. In 1211 the Emperor Frederick II wished to give this see to his physician, Jacopo, but Pope Innocent III appointed another bishop, claiming Frederick had disregarded the candidate of the chapter. An unclear situation resulted.[3]

Other bishops of Policastro were:
