The Roman Catholic Diocese of Dubrovnik (Croatian: Dubrovačka biskupija; Latin: Dioecesis Ragusiensis) is an ecclesiastical territory or diocese of the Roman Catholic Church in southern Croatia.[1][2] The diocese is centred in the city of Dubrovnik. It was first erected in 990. From 1120 to 1828 it was elevated to the status of archdiocese. By papal bull Locum Beati Petri it was degraded at the level of the diocese in 1828.

The Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary in Dubrovnik was built in 1713 after the previous cathedral was destroyed in an earthquake. Current Bishop Mate Uzinić is head of the diocese. He was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI in 2011.

Dubrovnik's patron saint is Saint Blaise (locally called Sveti Vlaho).
