Abstract: Fifty-seven full years had passed since the priests and people of Gozo began striving for the elevation of Gozo and Camino to an autonomous diocese. The obstacles were, however, too numerous and too complicated to overcome. In 1855, the promoters of the project succeeded in gaining the support of two great leaders, the Gozitans Pietro Pace and Adrian Dingli. The former was a young priest then residing in Rome, the latter had just been appointed Crown Counsel of Malta. In less than ten years, this formidable team succeeded in overcoming all opposition and, on 16 September 1864, Gozo and Camino were separated from Malta and established as a separate diocese.
