Diocese of Włocławek
The diocese Vladislaviensis , Polish: Włoclawek in Kuyavia, near Płock, was first mentioned in a papal bull issued by Pope Eugene III in 1148. The first bishop of Włocławek was Warner, whose name appears in the 1148 bull, then Onoldius from Italy. At some time the diocese was recorded as Vladislaviensis et Pomeraniae.
The name Vladislaviensis and the timeframe point to Władysław II the Exile or his grandfather Władysław I Herman as well as Vladislav I, King of Bohemia as possible namegivers. Various unsubstantiated claims as to various different years of establishment have been made by several Polish historians, starting in the 16th century.
