The Diocese of Sabina-Poggio Mirteto is a suburbicarian see of the Holy Roman Church (which means it carries the rare rank of cardinal-bishop) and a diocese of the Catholic Church in Italy in the Roman province of the Pope.


Sabina has been the seat of such a bishopric since the 6th century, though the earliest names in the list of bishops may be apocryphal.

The ancient cathedral of San Salvatore of Sabina was located in Forum Novum (Vescovio).

The official papal province of Sabina was established under Pope Paul V in 1605.

Since 1842 the Cardinal Bishop of Sabina also bears the title of Territorial Abbot of Farfa.

Since 1925, the cardinalatial Titular Church of Sabina has been united to that of Poggio Mirteto, and officially named Sabina e Poggio Mirteto, since 1986 Sabina-Poggio Mirteto. The current Cardinal-Bishop is Giovanni Battista Re, while the Ordinary of the Diocese is Bishop Ernesto Mandara.
