Arms of the Diocese of Llandaff
Pritchard Hughes was honoured by having a Dahlia Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' named for him in 1924

The Bishop of Llandaff is the Ordinary of the Church in Wales Diocese of Llandaff.

Contents

Area of authority

The diocese covers most of the County of Glamorgan. The Bishop's seat is located in the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul (the site of a church wrongly said to have been founded in 560 by Saint Teilo), in the village of Llandaff, just north-west of the City of Cardiff. The Bishop's residence is Llys Esgob, The Cathedral Green, Llandaff in Cardiff.

Brief history

Originally Celtic Christians, the bishops were in communion with Rome from 777 and, since the Reformation of the 1530s, have been members of the Anglican Church in Wales. There is only evidence for the bishops being called 'Bishop of Llandaff' from the early 11th century. Before this, though still ministering to Glamorgan and Gwent, the bishops were called Bishop of Teilo and were almost certainly based at Llandeilo Abbey. The very early bishops were probably based in Ergyng. In medieval records, the bishop is sometimes referred to as the Archbishop of Llandaff. This appears to have been a simple reaction to the claim of St David's to the archiepiscopal title. The current (102nd) Bishop of Llandaff is the Most Reverend Dr Barry Cennydd Morgan; when elected as Bishop in 1999 his official signature was Barry Landav, but once elected Archbishop of Wales in 2003 his Archbishop's signature Barry Cambrensis took precedence. He is supported by the Assistant Bishop of Llandaff, the Right Reverend David Wilbourne.
