Diocese of Ceuta

The Catholic diocese of Ceuta, first Portuguese and afterwards Spanish, existed from 1417 to 1879. It was a suffragan of the Patriarchate of Lisbon until 1675, with the end of the Iberian Union, when Ceuta choose to remain linked to the king of Spain. Since then it was a suffragan of the archdiocese of Seville.[1] Its territory around Ceuta had previously belonged to the Order of Christ.[2]

The diocese of Tanger was united to it, in 1570.[3] In 1851, upon the signature of the concordat between the Holy See and Spain, the diocese of Ceuta was agreed to be suppressed, being combined into the diocese of Cádiz y Ceuta[4] (up to then diocese of Cádiz y Algeciras). However, the agreement was not implemented until 1879.
