Roman Catholic Diocese of Trivento

Roman Catholic Diocese of Trivento

The Italian Catholic diocese of Trivento, in Molise, southern Italy, has existed since the tenth century. It is now a suffragan of the archdiocese of Campobasso-Boiano.[1]


The earliest bishop of Trivento was St. Castus of an uncertain epoch, the local legend assigning him to the fourth century.

Other bishops were:

  • the monk Leo, intruded and deposed by Pope Agapetus II (946);
  • Alferius (1109);
  • the Franciscan Luca (1226), exiled by King Manfred;
  • Pietro dell' Aquila (1348);
  • Giulio Cesare Moriconda (1582);
  • Alfonso Moriconda (1717), a Benedictine who restored the cathedral.

Historically the diocese was a suffragan of the archdiocese of Benevento[2].
