Peter Riga (c. 1140-1209) was a French poet and a canon of Reims cathedral and St. Denis in Paris. The Fragmenta Manuscripta collection has a leaf from his best-known work, Aurora—a poem on the bible with a focus on allegorical and moral interpretations. The poem was well known in the Middle Ages, with numerous surviving examples. It was referenced by other poets, including Chaucer in his Book of the Duchess. For more on medieval poems, see Poetry.
