Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The diocese of Alba was suppressed between 969 and 985 and its territory was divided between the neighboring dioceses of Asti (of which it became a simple parish), Acqui and Savona. The reconstitution of the Albanian episcopate took place before 997, but within narrower boundaries, which we try to trace using limited data of various kinds. This reconstruction explains some facts that had remained unsolved in the past. Only in the 12th century did the bishop of Alba regain control of some parish churches that remained for over a century under other jurisdictions. Among the bishops of the 11th and 12th centuries, the strong personalities of Benzone and Robaldo (later Milanese archbishop) stand out.
