The medieval diocese of Valva and Sulmona, on the border between
Lazio and the Abruzzi, had two cathedrals--a consequence of the melting
away of the original cathedral city.
On another matter under discussion, it might be noted that in
medieval Europe not only were there mitered abbots who had the right to
wear this episcopal regalia but also, in Germany and in Italy, some mitered
abbesses. These were superior mother superiors in whose presence even the
more rowdy magnates were presumably well behaved.
