Diocese of Augsburg is a diocese of the Catholic Church in Germany. The diocese is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Munich. According to the acts of the martyrdom of St. Afra, who with her handmaids suffered at the stake for Christ, there existed in Augsburg early in the fourth century a Christian community under Bishop Narcissus. St. Dionysius, uncle of St. Afra, is mentioned as his Successor. After the Congress of Vienna, where the diocese was restored, Franz Karl von Hohenlohe-Schillingsfurst was appointed bishop and Joseph Maria von Fraunberg was soon called to the archdiocese of Bamberg. There, they devolved upon their successors the important task of rearranging the external conditions and reanimating religious life, which had suffered sorely. Ignatius Albert von Riegg was successful in his endeavors to further the interests of souls, to raise the standard of popular education through the medium of numerous ordinances and frequent visitations, he assigned the administration and direction of studies in the Lyceum to the monks of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Stephen in Augsburg, founded by King Ludwig I of Bavaria.
Petrus von Richarz displayed energy and persistent zeal in promoting the interests of his diocese and the Catholic Church in general, encouraged the giving of missions to the people, the establishment of many religious institutions for the care of the sick and for educational purposes, superintended the training of the clergy. The same spirit characterized the labours of the succeeding bishops: Michael von Deinlein, who after a short episcopate was raised to the Archbishopric of Bamberg, he was succeeded by Maximilian von Lingg.
