The Patriarch of Alexandria is the archbishop of Alexandria, Egypt. The Alexandrian episcopate was revered as one of the three major episcopal sees (along with Rome and Antioch) before Constantinople or Jerusalem were granted similar status (in 381 and 451, respectively). Due to several schisms within Christianity, the title of the Patriarch of Alexandria is currently held by several persons belonging to different denominations:
- the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Alexandria
- the Coptic Orthodox Patriarch of Alexandria
- the Melkite Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem, and the East
- the Coptic Catholic Patriarchate of Alexandria
It was also previously held by the Latin Patriarch of Alexandria. Each of those denominations consider their patriarch as the successor to the original early bishops of Alexandria.
- Scataphorus was the 98-year-old Patriarch of Alexandria that was in attendance at the election of Pope Sporus VI (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 53).
