History

It was established in 1126, on the territory of the suppressed Roman Catholic Diocese of Alba Maritima, as a suffragan of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salona.

Its cathedral episcopal see was the Cathedral 'Porođenja Blažene Djevice Marije' of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which still stands in Skradin.

The diocese was suppressed in 1828 by papal bull Locum Beati Petri, when its territory was merged into the long-existing Roman Catholic Diocese of Šibenik, a suffragan of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Split.

Yet there later existed another Coadjutor Bishop of Skradin between 1878 and 1881, Francesco Lönhart.
