Diocese of Thizica
The Diocese of Thizica (sometimes spelled Tizica) is a Titular see of the Roman Catholic Church. The town of Thizica was likely in the Roman Province of Africa. St. Augustine of Hippo wrote that its bishop was condemned to death by Donatists (heretics) in 313.
The modern use of the diocese as a Titular See began only in 1967 and there have been four bishops since that time:
- Edwin Broderick (March 1967 – March 1969)
- Alfonso Nava Carreón (May 1969 – March 1990)
- Edwin Frederick O'Brien (February 1996 – March 1998)
- Louis Dicaire (February 1999 – Present)
