The former French Catholic diocese of Couserans existed perhaps from the fifth century, to the French Revolution. It was a co-cathedral diocese, with sees in both Couserans and Saint-Lizier, in south-west France. It was a suffragan of the archdiocese of Auch.


According to Gregory of Tours, the first bishop was St. Valier (Valerius), before the sixth century. Bishop Glycerius was present at the Council of Agde in 506. According to Louis Duchesne, he should be identified with a certain Licerius (St. Lizier) whom the Gallia Christiana places lower in the list of bishops; he was patron saint of St-Lizier, the episcopal residence of the bishops of Couserans.

The historian Pierre de Marca (1643-52) president of the Parliament of Navarre, was subsequently Bishop of Toulouse and Archbishop of Paris.
