Braga, the see of a Roman archbishop in Portugal. The bishopric of Braga was established soon after the conquest of Portugal by the Suevi, and somewhat later it was changed into an archbishopric. Three councils (Concilia Bracarensia) were held there: in 563, against the Priscillianists and Arians (this council completed the conversion of the Suevi from Arianism to orthodoxy); in 572 and 672, on church discipline.
