This chapter discusses the life and accomplishments of Pope Cyril VI (Anba Kyrillos VI), the 116th patriarch of Alexandria. Pope Cyril received the Syriac patriarch Ignatius Ya'qub III in January 1959. Two years later, in May 1961, he accepted an invitation from the Syrian Orthodox patriarch to visit Damascus. In Addis Ababa in 1965, the first conference of the non-Chalcedonian Churches took place, under the chairmanship of Pope Cyril VI. A follow-up conference of the non-Chalcedonian Churches was held in Cairo in January 1966. The outcome of these meetings was the beginning of an opening with the Chalcedonian Churches. A theological college was also built in the vicinity of the new St. Mark Cathedral under the auspices of Pope Cyril VI.
