This is a list of the Armenian Catholicoi of Cilicia of the Holy See of Cilicia (full name the Armenian Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia Armenian: Կաթողիկոսութիւն Հայոց Մեծի Տանն Կիլիկիոյ ).

The Armenian patriarchate was transferred from Armenia to Cilicia in 1058. Although the see at Echmiadzin was restored in 1441, the Cilician catholicosate continued in existence, and continues to exist to the present day. Today the see is located in Antelias, Lebanon. His Holiness, the Catholicos of Armenia and All Armenians claims sovereignty over the Catholicos of Cilicia, though the latter operates independently.
