His All-Holiness Gregory VII was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 1923 to 1924.

Patr. Gregory was born in 1855. During his short patriarchate, he introduced the use of the new Julian calendar throughout the patriarchate. He also issued the Tomos of 1924, dated November 13, 1924, that granted autocephaly to the Church of Poland and restored the independence of the Kievan Metropolitanate.

Patr. Gregory died suddenly of a massive heart attack on November 17, 1924.
