Grigor Narekatsi advanced the horizons of Armenian thought into a totally new phase. In his "Book of Lamentations. Poems" Narekatsi transforms his faith into words and enables the literary texture with an overwhelmingly influential force that impacts human souls. It is a vibrant speech that penetrates the nooks of one's soul and helps it to live and cures it when it is ailing. Narekatsi is one of those true followers of God who was canonized and acquired unfading glory by his divine genius.

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. 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.
