Book of Lamentations

Author: Gregory of Narek

St. Gregory called his book an "encyclopedia of prayer for all nations". For Narekatsi, peoples' absolute goal in life should be to reach to God. As a result, the difficulties of earthly life would disappear.
It was his hope that it would serve as a guide to prayer by people of all stations around the world.
Written shortly before the first millennium of Christianity, the prayers of St. Gregory of Narek have long been recognized as gems of Christian literature.

Saint Gregory of Narek (Grigor Narekatsi; 951 – 1003) was an Armenian monk, poet, mystical philosopher, theologian and saint of the Armenian Apostolic Church, born into a family of writers. Based in the monastery of Narek (Narekavank), he was "Armenia's first great poet".

He is the author of mystical interpretation on the Song of Songs and numerous poetic writings. His Book of Prayers, also known as "Book of Lamentations", a long mystical poem in 95 sections written around 977 has been translated to many languages. The book, the work of his mature years remains one of the definitive pieces of Armenian literature.
