His All Holiness Neophytus VII of Constantinople, also Neophytos VII, was Patriarch of Constantinople for two periods, from 1789 to 1794 and from 1798 to 1801. After his first deposition he was banished to the island of Rhodes, and after the second he was banished to Mount Athos.

In 1792, Patr. Neophytus disputed the installation by the Russians of Gavril Bănulescu-Bodoni as Metropolitan of Moldavia during the Russian occupation of Moldavia. He forcefully removed him after the Treaty of Iasi.

Patr. Neophytus blessed the Pedalion (Rudder) that was updated by Nikodemos Hagiorites.
