Roman Catholic Diocese of Viterbo

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Viterbo is a Catholic ecclesiastical territory in central Italy. From the 12th century, the official name of the diocese was the Diocese of Viterbo e Tuscania. In 1986, several dioceses were combined, and the title was changed to Diocese of Viterbo, Acquapendente, Bagnoregio, Montefiascone, Tuscania and San Martino al Monte Cimino; in 1991 the unwieldy name was shortened to "diocese of Viterbo". The diocese has always been exempt, i.e. immediately subject to the Holy See, not belonging to any ecclesiastical province.
