Pope Sisinnius (died February 4, 708) was the eighty-seventh Pope and remained in office for about three weeks in 708.

A Syrian by birth, Sisinnius's father's name was John.[1] The paucity of donations to the papacy during his reign (42 pounds of gold and 310 pounds of silver, a fraction of a the personal donations of other contemporary pontiffs) indicate that he was probably not from the aristocracy.[2]

Sisinnius was selected as pope during the Byzantine Papacy. He succeeded Pope John VII after a sede vacante of three months.[3] He was consecrated around January 15, 708.[1]

Sisinnius remained pope for twenty days.[3] According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, "although he was so afflicted with gout that he was unable even to feed himself, he is nevertheless said to have been a man of strong character, and to have been able to take thought for the good of the city".[1] Among his few acts as pope was the consecration of a bishop for Corsica.[1] He also ordered "that lime be burned in order to restore portions" of the walls of Rome.[4] The restoration of the walls planned by Sisinnius was carried out by Pope Gregory II.[5] The book True Christianity: The Catholic Way credits him with defending the Church against the Lombards and Saracens. [6]

Sisinnius was buried in Old St. Peter's Basilica.[1] He was succeeded less than two months later by Pope Constantine.[3] Constantine, also Syrian by birth, was probably the brother of Sisinnius.[7]
