Tricca is a Catholic titular see. The original diocese was in Thessaly, a suffragan of Larissa. In 1882, this portion of Thessaly was annexed to the Kingdom of Greece. From then the see, which bears the names of Triccala and Stagoi, was dependent on the Holy Synod of Athena. It is the modern Trikala (Τρίκαλα).

It was an ancient city, near the Peneius River and on the Lethaeus River. It is mentioned in Homer [Homer. "The Iliad", II, 729; IV, 202.] as the Kingdom of Machaon and Podaleirius, sons of Aesculapius and physicians of the Greek army. It possessed the oldest known temple of Aesculapius, which was discovered in 1902, with a hospital for pilgrims. Tricca is mentioned by other writers.


Socrates Scholasticus, [Socrates Scholasticus, V 22.] Sozomenes, [Sozomenes, V 12.] and Nicephorus Callistus [Nicephorus Callistus, XII, 34.] say that Heliodorus, probably the same as the author Heliodorus of Emesa, became Bishop of Tricca. Another bishop was Oecumenius, to whom have been wrongly attributed commentaries on the Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles of St. Paul and the Catholic Epistles (for the works published in his name are not his), and lived at the end of the sixth century. He was an Origenist and Monophysite who wrote a commentary on the Apocalypse. [Petrides "Oecumenius de Tricca, ses oeuvres et son culte" in "Echos d'Orient", VI, 307-10; Le Quien, "Oriens christianus", I, 117-20.]

Some Latin titular bishops in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries are also known. [Eubel, "Hierarchia catholica medii aevi," II, 280; III, 338.]
