George of Pisidia is rightly regarded as a great poet. His career as a senior official in the Constantinopolitan patriarchate is outlined. His poems, both religious and secular, are dated, and the patrons, if any, are identified. He is credited with writing an official history of the Emperor Heraclius' Persian campaigns (624–8), after first losing and then regaining Heraclius' favour. His achievement as a poet is recognized.

Keywords:   George, Pisidia, patriarchate, Heraclius, Persia, campaign
