Lucar, Cyril (1572–1638). Patriarch of Constantinople from 1620. His earlier experiences in church politics had turned him against Rome, and in correspondence with Dutch theologians he expressed more and more sympathy with the Reformed churches. His Confession of Faith published in Geneva in 1629 was an attempt to strengthen the Orthodox Church against Romanizing tendencies and bring it into dialogue with other Churches. His theology was finally condemned at the Synod of Jerusalem (1672).
