History

On the 16th of November 1887, the southern part of the Vicariate Apostolic of Zanzibar was erected as a Prefecture Apostolic of Central Zanzibar and entrusted to the Benedictine Congregation of St. Ottilien in Bavaria, Germany. In 1992 the Prefecture was raised to the status of a Vicariate, while in 1906 the name was officially changed to that of Vicariate Apostolic of Dar es Salaam. In 1912 the southern part of the Vicariate was erected as the Prefecture Apostolic of Lindi. In 1922, after the withdrawal of the German missionaries, Vicariate was again divided, the western portion now forming the Diocese of Iringa entrusted to the Consolata Fathers of Turin, Italy. In 1953 the Vicariate Apostolic of Dar es Salaam was raised to the rank of an Archdiocese and Metropolitan See of the Ecclesiatical Province of Eastern Tanganyika which includes the Diocese of Morogoro, Dodoma, Iringa, Moshi and Mbulu.

On 11th May, 1906, the Vicariate of Central Zanzibar was erected, containing all the Missions of the Zanzibar Vicariate which were situated in Germany East Africa. On 21st December 1906, the new Vicariate received the name Bagamoyo. In 1910 the Vicariate was again divided; the southern part retained the name of Bagamoyo; and the northern part became the Vicariate of Kilimanjaro.
