Patriarch Paul of Alexandria was Greek Patriarch of Alexandria between 536 and 540.

He was elected Patriarch in 536 when the Greek Church of Alexandria, which had previously recognized the Miaphysite Theodosius, disbanded with this recognition and elected Paul in his place. He was the first Chalcedonian to be elected Patriarch since 482.

This election was the final split between the Miaphysite and Orthodox lineage, which lasts until today.
