This is a list of Armenian Catholicoi of Cilicia. The Armenian patriarchate was tranferred from Armenia to Cilicia in 1058. Although the see at Echmiadzin was restored in 1441, the Cilician patriarch still continued office until the present day. Today the see is located at Antelias in Lebanon. His Holiness, the Catholicos of All Armenians claims soverignty over the Catholicos of Cilicia.
