Joachim III the Magnificent (Greek: Ιωακείμ Γ' ο Μεγαλοπρεπής; 1834 – 1912) was Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 1878 to 1884 and from 1901 to 1912.

He was born in Varna and in 1874 bishop of Thessalonica[1] In the time of his first reign, he worked on the improvement of the financial state of the Patriarchate. In 1880 he founded the magazine "Truth" and did various other charitable acts. He is seen as one of the most prominent and important Patriarchs of the twentieth century and modern time. Patriarch Joachim III repeatedly attempted to find a solution to the Bulgarian schism, to little avail.[2]Patriarch Joachim is a Mason, a member of lodge «Πρόοδος»[3]
