The Patriarchate of Montecara is the diocese of the Solarian Catholic Church in the city-state of Montecara. It serves a local population of approximately 1.3 million Catholics, about three-quarters of all residents of the state.

History

Pope Urbanus XI (né Attaviàn de Barbanario), Patriarch of Montecara 1770-1787 and Pope 1787-1799

The diocese was established in the early third century by the bishop Cuniculus at a time when Sotirian Catholicism was still largely an underground movement. It was raised to the status of an archdiocese the following century.
