Roman Catholic Diocese of Tragurium

(Redirected from Bishop of Trogir)

Tragurium, Ancient Latin name of a city in Dalmatia (coastal Croatia), now called Trogir, was a bishopric until 1829 and a Latin titular bishopric until 1933.[1][2]

  Diocese of Trogir in the 15th century


In 1050 Tragurium became the seat of a diocese also known as Traù (in curiate Italian) or Trogir in Croatian.

On 1 May 1298 it lost territory to establish the Diocese of Šibenik.

On 30 June 1828, the residential see was abolished by papal bull Locum Beati Petri, a Croatian dioceses reshuffle, which divided its territory over the then Roman Catholic Diocese of Split–Makarska and its own above daughter Šibenik.
