Notitia Episcopatuum

   List of church dioceses (q.v.). Various lists survive, the earliest dating from the seventh century. Often lists do not coincide with those dioceses represented at contemporary church councils, making one wonder how rigorously they were kept up-to-date. As a result, for example, they may not reflect the decline of cities in the East as a result of invasions by Arabs, and, later, by Seljuks and Ottomans (qq.v.).
