Arcidiocesi di Pedactoe

L’arcidiocesi di Pedactoe (in latino: Archidioecesis Pedachtoëna) è una sede soppressa e sede titolare della Chiesa cattolica.

Pedactoe, identificabile con Bedochton (Pedachton) nell’odierna Turchia, è un’antica sede arcivescovile autocefala della provincia romana dell’Armenia Prima nella diocesi civile del Ponto e nel patriarcato di Costantinopoli.

Oggi Pedactoe sopravvive come sede arcivescovile titolare; la sede è vacante dal 18 agosto 1967.
