Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Florence

  (Redirected from Archbishop of Florence)

The Archdiocese of Florence (Latin: Archidioecesis Florentina) is a metropolitan see of the Catholic Church in Italy.[1][2] Traditionally founded in the 1st century, it was elevated to the dignity of an archdiocese on May 10, 1419, by Pope Martin V. Its mother church is the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, which has as its pastor the Archbishop of Florence. Since September 2008 Giuseppe Betori is the Archbishop; the former Archbishop, Cardinal Ennio Antonelli, was named President of the Pontifical Council for the Family.
