He came from Crete. He became protosyncellus of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and was later elected metropolitan bishop of Mytilene (1783–1809). In 1809 he was elected Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
Even though of average education, he is considered a successful Patriarch, as he was prudent with remarkable administrative skills. He was also characterised as a remarkably brave protector of the interests of the church. In 1813 he resigned for health reasons. He retired to Mytilene, where he died in 1824.
