 The Diocese of Gilneas is a geographic province of the spiritual authority of the Church of the Holy Light.  It is centered around Light's Dawn Cathedral in Gilneas City, Gilneas and extends to the surrounding areas.  The Diocese is headed by its Bishop, Melchiz Tzedeck.


The Diocese of Gilneas borders the Diocese of Lordaeron at its northernmost point.  The border runs from the coastline of the Great Sea due East along the river flowing from Lordamere Lake.  It then continues along the southern coast of Lordamere lake until it reaches the mountain range bordering the Kingdom of Alterac.  It then moves eastward following the southern edge of the mountain range (including the territory once occupied by Dalaran).  It follows this mountain range into Arathor and wraps around the highlands (including Stromgarde), following the mountain range, until it reaches the coastline.  Its southern border is entirely coastal.
