unknown16231628
Metropolitan of Adrianople and Ecumenical Patriarch for the Church of Constantinople for a few months in 1623. His short reign has to be considered in the context of the clash between the pro-Calvinist Patriarch Cyril Lucaris, supported by the Dutch and English ambassadors, and his opponents supported by the French, Austrian and Venetian ambassadors to the Ottoman capital.
