The Roman Catholic Diocese of La Canea or Cidonia (Cydonia /sɪˈdniə/) was a bishopric on Crete, with see at present Chania, and afterward was twice a Latin titular see.[1][2]

History[edit]

The Ancient city of Kydonia on Crete (insular Greece) had a bishop no later than the second Byzantine rule (961 AD – 1204 AD), when it was given the modern name of Chania.

The Venetians (and shortly the Genoans) who conquered Crete firmly established a Latin diocese. It was suppressed only in 1700.

It was suppressed in 1922 having had the following incumbents, all of the fitting Episcopal (lowest) rank :
