The Diocese of Tursi-Lagonegro (Latin: Dioecesis Tursiensis-Lacunerulonensis) is a Roman Catholic ecclesiastical territory in Basilicata, southern Italy. It is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Potenza-Muro Lucano-Marsico Nuovo.[1][2]

History[edit]

Anglona was destroyed in the days of Queen Johanna of Naples; the diocese was officially changed in name from Diocese of Anglona to Diocese of Anglona-Tursi in 1545, Tursi being in the diocese. The current name dates from 1976.

Mention of the diocese of Anglona in history is very late; all knowledge of its early origin and ecclesiastical organization is lost. Only in 1077 do we find Simon, a bishop of Anglona, who was present at the ceremony of donation of some fields, made by Hugo di Chiaromonte and his wife Ginarga to the Basilian monastery of Sts. Elias and Anastasius.[3]
