Sisinnius II became Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople in 996 and held the post until his death in 999.

He was extremely well educated and had been honoured with the office of magistros. His patriarchate was characterised by the facing of flock issues, issues about wedding and divorce, but also by issues about the extension of the Bishop of Constantinople.
