His Holiness Paisius I of Constantinople was the Patriarch of the Church of Constantinople for two periods, from 1652 to 1653 and from 1654 to 1655. He occupied the ecumenical throne during a time of frequent changes of the incumbent.

Life

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.
