Roman Catholic Diocese of Dresden-Meissen

The Diocese of Dresden-Meissen (Latin: Dioecesis Dresdensis-Misnensis; German: Bistum Dresden-Meißen) is a Diocese of Catholic Church in Germany. Founded as the Bishopric of Meissen (German: Bistum Meißen) in 968, it was dissolved in 1539 during the Protestant Reformation. The diocese was reestablished in 1921 and renamed Dresden-Meissen in 1980. The seat of the diocese is in Dresden and its patron saint is Benno. It is suffragan to the Archdiocese of Berlin. Its cathedral is the Katholische Hofkirche in Dresden.

In 1980 the seat of the diocese was moved to Dresden, leading the diocese to be renamed Dresden-Meissen. Since 1994 the three formerly exempt jurisdictions of Berlin, Dresden-Meißen, and Görlitz form the new ecclesiastical province of Berlin with the latter as metropolitan see.
