History

The Latinized medieval name for Gardiki is Cardica. Cardica is a Roman Catholic titular see in the former Roman province of Thessaly.

It figures only in later Notitiae episcopatuum of the twelfth or thirteenth century as a suffragan of Larissa. Lequien (II, 979) mentions five Latin Bishops of Cardica, from 1208 to 1389, the first being Bartholomew, to whom many letters of Pope Innocent III are addressed. Lequien was unacquainted with any Greek bishop of the see. Manuscript lists, however, contain eight names: John, 1191-1192; Metrophanes, degraded in 1623; Gregorius or Cyrillus, 1623; Sophronius, 1646-1649; Gregorius, about 1700; Meletius, 1743; Paisius, eighteenth century; Gregorius, about 1852.

When Thessaly was united with Greece in 1881, the see had been vacant since 1875. It was suppressed in 1899.
