His Holiness Pope St. Cyril (Kyrillos) IV (born Daoud (David) in 1816) was the 110th Coptic Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark from 1854 to 1861. Despite his relatively short papacy, he is justly regarded as the 'Father of Reform' of the Coptic Orthodox Church in modern times. He is credited for establishing a great printing house and printing many Church books.
