Archdiocese of Gorizia

Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Gorizia

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Gorizia, is an Archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic church in Italy. The archiepiscopal see of Gorizia (Friulian: Gurizza/Gurizze; German: Görz; Slovenian: Gorica) was founded in 1752 when the Patriarchate of Aquileia was divided. It was suppressed in 1788 and re-established in 1797 as the Diocese of Görz-Gradisca. It was raised again to an archdiocese in 1830. The diocese of Ljubljana (Laibach), Trieste-Koper (Capo d'Istria), Poreč-Pula (Parenzo-Pola), and Krk-Rab (Veglia-Arbe) were formerly under the metropolitan jurisdiction of this archdiocese; however, now the Diocese of Trieste is its only suffragan diocese.

The territory of the Archdiocese was identical with the Austro-Hungarian County of Gorizia and Gradisca until 1918 when it was transferred to Italy at the conclusion of the First World War. Also from 1766 the archbishop was Prince of the Holy Roman Empire.
