The Patriarchate of Venice (Latin: Patriarchatus Venetiarum), sometimes called the Archdiocese of Venice, is an archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Italy.

The ordinary of the archdiocese is the Patriarch of Venice, who was traditionally created a cardinal in consistory by the Pope. Pope Francis doesn't create cardinals as "automatically" as his predecessors used to, thus Francesco Moraglia is not a cardinal. The Patriarch of Venice has, however, the right to wear cardinal's scarlet vestment. The mother church of the archdiocese is the Basilica di San Marco in Venezia.

As a metropolitan see, the Patriarch of Venice is the metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of Venice. Its suffragan dioceses include Adria-Rovigo, Belluno-Feltre, Chioggia, Concordia-Pordenone, Padova, Treviso, Verona, Vicenza, and Vittorio Veneto.[1]

History[edit]

In 1451 the Patriarchate of Grado was merged with the Bishopric of Castello and Venice to form the Archdiocese of Venice.
