Gratianopolis (Mauretania Caesariensis)

Gratianopolis was a Roman city in the province Mauretania Caesariensis, North Africa, one of several (re)named after the emperor Gratian.

It is only known from mentions in church council minutes. Its history, location and present condition are unknown.

Ecclesiastical history

Gratianopolis sent bishops to several 5th-century church councils:

The see apparently does not figure in a list of the bishoprics of the province preserved in a document of the sixth and seventh centuries, unless it be disguised under the native name (see "Byzantinische Zeitschrift", 1892, II, 26, 31).

Since 1652, it has been revived as a titular bishopric of the Catholic Church.
