Leo Styppeiotes of Constantinople, also Leo Styppis, was the patriarch of the Church of Constantinople from 1134 to 1143. He is remembered for the severe penances he imposed on the laity found guilty of magical practices.
Little is known about Patr. Leo's life. During his patriarchate, and under his authority, a posthumous trial was held, in May 1140, by a Synod of Constantinople, at the church of St. Alexius in Constantinople, that condemned the monk, Constantine Chrysomalus, as a teacher of heresies associated with Bogomilism and Messalianism.
Patr. Leo reposed in 1143, within a few months of emperor John II Comnenus who died on April 8, 1143. He was succeeded as patriarch by Michael II Kourkouas who was appointed to the position by the new emperor, Manuel I Comnenus Megas.
