Jerotej Sokolović also Jeortej, Serbian Patriarch [1]was the archbishop of the Serbian Patriarchate of Peć and the Serbian patriarch from 1589 to 1591. He succeeded Patriarch Savatije Sokolović on the throne of the Serbian Patriarchate. He spent a very short time as a Serbian patriarch.[2]

There are almost no other data about Patriarch Jerotej except for two records. The inscription on the mine, which was left in Šišatovac by the scribe hieromonk Georgije, in 1589, says that "it was transcribed in the days of the consecrated archbishop, father and teacher of Serbs and Bulgarians and many other parts of Bishop Cyrus Jerotej".

From the inscription in the manuscript type of the monastery of Orahovica Monastery, which was transcribed in the time of Metropolitan Vasilije of Požega and Patriarch Jerotej, it can be seen that the patriarch managed the house of Saint Sava well because it is said about kyr-Jerotej:

Patriarch Jerotej died on 17 February 1591.
