Neophytos I (Greek: Νεόφυτος Α') was a 12th-century clergyman who served as Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople in 1153. Neophytos was a monk at the Monastery of Theotokos the Benefactor before being elevated to the Patriarchal throne after the death in office of his predecessor. His short reign as Patriarch of Constantinople—of about a year—was uneventful, and he retired to become an ascetic. His short reign was during the rule of Byzantine emperor Manuel I Comnenus.
