Polycarp I of Jerusalem was the patriarch of the Church of Jerusalem from 1808 to 1827.

Little is known of his life and patriarchate. He was enthroned on November 22, 1808 and reposed on January 15, 1827.

He restored the Church of the Holy Sepulchre after it had been damaged by a fire on October 11, 1808, a month before his enthronement.
