St. Gregory of Nareg Biography (Wikipedia)

Gregory of Narek (Armenian: Գրիգոր Նարեկացի Grigor Narekatsi, Krikor Naregatsi; 951 – 1003) was an Armenian monk, poet, mystical philosopher, theologian, and composer who is venerated as a Saint by both the Armenian Apostolic and Catholic Church and its particular churches and liturgical rites. Born into a family of scholars and based in Narek Monastery near Lake Van, he is regarded as "Armenia's first great poet".

He is the author of a mystical interpretation on the Song of Songs and numerous works of poetry in Classical Armenian. His Book of Prayers, also known as Book of Lamentations, is a long mystical poem in 95 sections. It was written around 977 and has been translated into many languages. More than a thousand years after its author's death, The Book of Lamentations remains one of the definitive works of both Armenian literature, theology, and spirituality.

In 2015, Saint Gregory of Narek was declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Francis.
