Personal details

Paisius I (? – c. 1688) was a two-time Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople (August 1, 1652 – April 1653, March 1654 – March 1655). He was previously Bishop of Ephesus and Larissa.[1]


Paisius was born at the turn of the sixteenth to seventeenth centuries. The exact date is unknown. He was from Lesbos. In a time of great turbulence, he was not particularly distinguished. After his second deposition, he established residence at Halki, having received eis zoarkeian, that is, without pastoral obligations, the Metropolis of Ephesus and Cyzicus. The date and place of his death is not known, but probably he died at Halki later in the seventeenth century.
