The former German Catholic diocese of Kammin [Cammin, occasionally Camin, Kamień after Polish.] (Kamień) existed in Pomerania, from the twelfth century to 1544 [ [http://www.gcatholic.com/dioceses/diocese/kamm0.htm Diocese of Kammin, Germany ] ] . In 1549 Martin Weiher was consecrated by the pope, although he was Lutheran. There were Protestant bishops to 1648, (last year of the 30 Years War). It was suppressed, and shortly afterwards its territory was secularised.

History

Otto of Bamberg around 1130 subdued the area, then the bishopric of Wolin, for the Archbishopric of Bamberg [Norman Davies, "God's Playground: A History of Poland : in Two Volumes" (2005 edition), p. 69.] . Otto appointed his disciple Boniface bishop of Julin, creating the first Catholic Pomeranian diocese [ [http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Boleslaus_III Boleslaus III - LoveToKnow 1911 ] ] .

Pope Innocent II, by a papal bull of 14 October, 1140, made the church of St. Adalbert at Julin on the Island of Wolin the see of the diocese [ [http://www.kirche-mv.de/History-PEK.607.0.html History PEK: Mecklenburgische und Pommersche Evangelische Kirche online ] ] , and Adalbert was consecrated bishop at Rome. There was a conflict between the Archdiocese of Magdeburg and Archdiocese of Gniezno on jurisdiction [André Vauchez, Richard Barrie Dobson, Michael Lapidge, "Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages", p. 1061.] . The difficulty as to which archdiocese was to be the metropolitan of the new bishopric was in the end evaded by placing it directly under the papal see.

Before 1176 the see was transferred to Kammin (Kamień), where a cathedral chapter was founded for the Cathedral of St. John. [ [http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12225a.htm "Catholic Encyclopedia", article "Pomerania"] ]
