'''Samuel (Kapasoulis) of Alexandria''' was the [[Patriarch]] of the [[Church of Alexandria]] for two periods, from 1710 to 1712 and from 1714 to 1723. Little is known of his patriarchate.
In 1712, Patr. Samuel sent [[Archbishop]] Arsenius of Thebas on a mission to Great Britain to ask financial help for the Alexandria patriarchate from Queen Anne. Abp. Arsenius was accompanied by the [[archimandrite]] Gennadius, the [[protosyngellos]] James, and a [[deacon]] named Simeon. In London, Arsenius converted a private house into a Greek [[chapel]], where he celebrated the [[Divine Liturgy]] every Sunday.
