  Diocese - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Catholicism, the pope is the bishop of the diocese of Rome.
In Christian churches, the diocese is an administrative territorial unit administrated by a bishop, hence also referred to as a bishopric or episcopal see, though more often the term episcopal see means the office held by the bishop.
Between the 4th and 6th centuries, as the older administrative structure began to crumble, the role of the bishops in the western lands of the Empire enabled those lands and their peoples to maintain a semblance of civilisation as the authority of Rome vanished.
