Sarlat Cathedral

Local nameAncienne cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos
LocationSarlat-la-Canéda, France

Sarlat Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church and former cathedral located in Sarlat-la-Canéda, France. It is a national monument.

The Diocese of Sarlat was established in 1317 with a number of bishoprics in the region in the aftermath of the suppression of the Albigensians. The new bishop of Sarlat was the abbot of the ancient Sarlat Abbey, the church of which became the cathedral. Rebuilding was not completed until the 1680s.. The diocese was abolished under the Concordat of 1801 and its territory was transferred to the Diocese of Périgueux.

The dedication refers to Saint Sacerdos rather than to the Latin term sacerdos. There are two French saints called Sacerdos, but the cathedral refers to Sacerdos of Limoges, whose relics it received during the Middle Ages.
