WARNER or Garnier (fl. 1106), writer of homilies, was a monk of Westminster. He was present at the translation of the relics of St. Withburga, 1106 (Liber Eliensis, ed. D. J. Stewart, p. 296). He is called 'homeliarius,' and dedicated a volume of homilies to his abbot, Gilbert Crispin [q. v.] This work is lost. His writings have sometimes been confused with those of the celebrated Werner Rolewinck, who wrote in the fourteenth century.
