Archdiocese of Aix

Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Aix

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Aix is an archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic church, in France. The Archepiscopal see is located in the city of Aix-en-Provence. The diocese comprises the department of Bouches-du-Rhône (minus the arrondissement of Marseilles), in the Region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. It is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Marseilles.

Originally erected in the first century as the diocese of Aix, the diocese was elevated to an Archdiocese in the 5th century. After the Concordat, the Archdiocese became a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Marseilles, and gained the sees of Arles and Embrun, becoming the Archdiocese of Aix (-Arles-Embrun). In 2007, the name got changed again, dropping the Embrun to the Archdiocese of Aix (-Arles).

The current bishop is Claude Feidt.

History

Certain traditions make St. Maximinus the first Bishop of Aix, one of the seventy-two Disciples and the companion of Mary Magdalen in Provence. Louis Duchesne seems to have proved that this saint, the object of a very ancient local cult, was not considered the first bishop of Aix, or connected with the life of St. Mary Magdalen, except in recent legends, devised towards the middle of the eleventh century by the monks of Vezelay. The first historically known bishop of Aix, Lazarus, occupied this see about the beginning of the fifth century. Only at the end of the eighth century Aix became an archbishopric; up to that time it was dependent upon the Bishop of Arles.
