Cisamus

Cisamus is a Catholic titular see. The original diocese was in Crete, with see at modern Kissamos. As a harbour on the north-west coast of Crete, it served Aptera as a port of entry.

Bishops

Lequien (II, 272) gives only two Greek bishops, Theopemptus in 692 and Leo in 787; Gams (404) adds Gerasimus about 1500.

The Greek Orthodox see still exists, and is suffragan to Candia.

During the occupation of the island by the Venetians there was also a Latin see subject to Gortyna and Candia. Ten bishops are mentioned by Lequien (III, 927-930) from 1346 to 1589; twenty by Eubel (I, 192, II, 142) from about 1305 to 1498. Angelo Barbadigo (created cardinal by the antipope Nicholas V) who was present at Rome at the coronation (1328) of Emperor Louis IV, became administrator apostolicus Chironensis in Crete, Bishop of Cisamus, and afterwards Bishop of Verona.
