Sergius II the Studite (Greek: Σέργιος Β′ ὁ Στουδίτης) (? – July 1019, Constantinople) was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from July 1001 to 1019.[1] He was a successor to the Patriarch Sisinnius II of Constantinople. He came from a prominent family related to the Patriarch Photios I of Constantinople. He reached the rank of abbot of the Monastery of Manuel (or, according to others, of the Stoudios Monastery).

According to the later legend, Sergius II was in the conflict with the Pope Sergius IV.[2]

His successor was Eustathius of Constantinople[3].

"A story that Pope Sergius IV (1009–12) sent Sergius II the Synodicon, a letter insisting on the Latin Trinitarian teaching that the Holy Spirit relates to both Father and Son (Filioque), thus initiating the Eastern schism when Patriarch Sergius reacted by erasing the pope’s name from the Byzantine prayer intercessions, is the invention of 12th-century controversialists.
