Na tom je području u ranokršćansko doba postojala → Sisačka biskupija, a biskupiju u Zagrebu osnovao je 1094. ugarski kralj Ladislav i potpadala je pod Ostrogonsku metropoliju sve do 1180., kada je pripala Kaločkoj metropoliji. Budući da kralj Ladislav nije bio u dobrim odnosima s papom Urbanom II., koji je podupirao kralja Zvonimira, odobrenje za osnutak biskupije dobio je od protupape Klementa III. Premda biskupija ni poslije nije dobila službeno papino priznanje, bila je priznata via facti. Tek je papa Grgur IX. potvrdio 1227. darovnice i povlastice Zagrebačke biskupije, među kojima je najvažnija → Felicijanova povelja iz 1134.
