Before becoming a Pope he was the [[Metropolitan]] of Assiut in Egypt , he is the second Bishop/Metropolitan to become a Pope in the history of the Coptic Orthodox Church and the first Bishop/Metropolitan to become a Pope was Pope [[John XIX of Alexandria (Coptic)|John XIX]] <ref> History of the Coptic Church, [[Iris Habib Elmasry]] </ref>
Due to him accepting the Post there was a diagreement between him and Habib Elmasry who was the secretary of the General Congregation Council (Elmagles Elmelly Ela'am) of the Coptic Orthodox Church at some stage. Mr Elmasry was the father of the Coptic historian [[Iris Habib Elmasry]] and she documented these incedents in her book about the history of the Coptic Church.<ref> History of the Coptic Church, Iris Habib Elmasry</ref>
During his papacey he did not ordinate any Bishops or Metropolitans and this was taken as a symbol of his regret to have become a Pope despite being a Metropolitan beforehand.<ref> History of the Coptic Church, Iris Habib Elmasry</ref>
