Sergius II (Greek: Σέργιος Β′; ? – July 1019) was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from July 1001 to 1019.

According to the history of John Skylitzes, he was a relative of the celebrated 9th-century patriarch Photius.[1] In 1001, he was abbot of the Monastery of Manuel, which had been re-founded by Photius, when he was elected to fill the patriarchal see (June/July).[1]

According to the later legend, Sergius II was in the conflict with the Pope Sergius IV.[2]

According to Skylitzes, he died in July 1019. His successor was Eustathius.[1]

"A story that Pope Sergius IV (1009–12) sent Sergius II the Synodicon, a letter insisting on the Latin Trinitarian teaching that the Holy Spirit relates to both Father and Son (Filioque), thus initiating the Eastern schism when Patriarch Sergius reacted by erasing the pope’s name from the Byzantine prayer intercessions, is the invention of 12th-century controversialists.
