HistoryEdit

The first recorded bishop of Boiano is Adalberto (1071). Others were:

  • Poliziano (1215) who consecrated the cathedral;
  • Giovanni (1226), who decorated the facade at his own expense, as recorded in an inscription;
  • Silvio Pandoni (1489), who restored the work of Giovanni;
  • Cardinals Franciotto Orsini (1519) and Carlo Carafa (1572), who adorned the cathedral with costly furnishings;
  • Celestino Bruni (1653), theologian and preacher.

After the death of Bishop Nicolò Rosetti (elected in 1774), differences between the Holy See and the Kingdom of Naples prevented the appointment of a successor until 1836, when Giuseppe Riccardi was appointed.[3]
