The Diocese of Rieti (Latin: Dioecesis Reatina (-S. Salvatoris Maioris)) is a See of the Catholic Church in Italy. It is immediately subject to the Holy See.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

The diocese was established in the fifth century. It lost territory in 1309 to the now-suppressed Diocese of Città Ducale. On 3 June 1925 Pope Pius XI added S. Salvatore Maggiore to the name of the diocese.[2][3] In 2014 there was one priest for every 1,000 Catholics in the diocese.
