Paul II of Constantinople was the Patriarch of Constantinople from 641 to 653. He was a supporter of the heresy of Monothelitism.

Life

Little is known of the early life of Paul. He was the leader of the regency of senators for emperor Constans II during his minority after an imperial succession crisis in 641. Paul was named patriarch after Pyrrhus was deposed and banished in 641 for allegedly plotting against the new emperor, Constantine III.

Pope Theodore I of Rome, however, did not recognize Paul as he did not consider the deposition of his predecessor, Pyrrhus, to be canonical. Theodore's position was ignored in Constantinople.

Paul was associated with the emperor Constans II's "Typos", which was thought to have been written by him for the emperor. The decree attempted to end the controversy between heretical Monophysitism and Orthodox Dyothelitism with the introduction of the heretical dogma of Monothelitism.

At the Sixth Ecumenical Council of 680 in Constantinople, which was convened by emperor Constantine IV, Paul was condemned as a heretic along with Sergius I, Pyrrhus I, and Peter, all Patriarchs of Constantinople, Pope Honorius of Rome, and Patriarch Cyrus of Alexandria, amongst others, for their actions supporting Monothelitism. Paul reposed in 653.
