Ancient Diocese of Alet

Ancient Diocese of Alet

The former French Catholic diocese of Alet was created in 1317 from territory up to then in the diocese of Narbonne. The diocese lasted until the French Revolution, being suppressed by the Concordat of 1801.[1]

Alet-les-Bains is located in south-west France, in the modern department of Aude. The territory of the former diocese went to the diocese of Carcassonne, to which the title of bishop was formally attached, and also to the diocese of Toulouse and the diocese of Perpignan.
