Archdiocese of Turin
The diocese was established in the 4th century and on May 21, 1515 by Pope Leo X to an archdiocese with the seat of a metropolitan . The first bishop named is St. Maximus of Turin , who died around 420 , whose sermons are considered to be important theological writings of the early Church . Since 1883 all Turin were archbishops upon appointment Cardinal or Cardinals were then created (up to Davide Riccardi, who shortly before his admission to the College of Cardinals in 1897 died) so that Turin as traditionally connected to the dignity of cardinal bishop's seat applies. The current archbishop ( Cesare Nosiglia ) has not yet been appointed cardinal until now (2019).
