The Italian Catholic Diocese of Frosinone-Veroli-Ferentino(Latin: Dioecesis Frusinatensis-Verulana-Ferentina) has existed since 1986. In that year, the Diocese of Ferentino was united into the Diocese of Veroli-Frosinone; which was the name of the historic Diocese of Veroli from 1956. It is immediately subject to the Holy See.[1][2] In 2013 there was one priest for every 1,685 Catholics in the diocese.


Veroli was only fifty-two miles from Rome, and therefore an excellent benefice for a prelate who was employed in the Roman Curia.[3]

In a bull of 18 June 1081 Pope Gregory VII confirmed the extent of the territory of the diocese of Veroli for Bishop Albert.[4] Pope Urban II confirmed the possessions of the Church of Veroli in a bull of 2 July 1097,[5] and the provisions of the bull were repeated by Pope Paschal II in a bull of 4 September 1108, written for the benefit of Bishop Albert.[6]

Pope Alexander III determined that the number of Canons in the Cathedral of Saint Andrew should be sixteen.[7]
