Meletius Doumani (1839–1906) was Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch (1899–1906). He was the first Syrian primate of non-Greek descent in 168 years. When Saint Raphael (then an archimandrite) was elected Bishop of Zahleh, Lebanon in December 1901, Meletius asked him to return to the patriarchate from his mission in the United States. Archimandrite Raphael politely refused, noting that he wished to complete the work he was then doing in the United States.
