The Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio is the diocese of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America with jurisdiction over 40 counties in southern Ohio. It is one of 15 dioceses that make up the Province of the Midwest (Province 5). The offices of the Bishop of Southern Ohio and the cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, are both located in downtown Cincinnati.

The Diocese of Southern Ohio split from the Diocese of Ohio in 1875. The diocese’s original cathedral, St. Paul Episcopal Cathedral, Cincinnati, was located in downtown Cincinnati but was demolished in 1937 due to structural problems. Thomas A. Jaggar became the first bishop in 1875. The current bishop, Thomas E. Breidenthal, was consecrated April 28, 2007.
