Gewargis Warda (13th cent.), an important Church of the East poet about whom little is known, was the author of a collection of hymns known as the Book of the Rose (warda in Syriac). This volume, Folkmann’s doctoral dissertation, presents a critical edition of seven poems by Gewargis with critical notes. The poems are mostly focused on St. George, and Folkmann’s introduction covers the St. George literature generally and the details of his martyrdom, the manuscripts used for the edition, and the meter of the poems. In addition to the Syriac text and notes, a German translation of poems one and three are provided.
