    A Wonderful Armenian Illuminated Manuscript of the Four Gospels

    A Manuscript of the Four Gospels with 6 miniatures, illuminated concordances, marginal illustrations, and ornamented letters. Beautifully copied with bolorgir lettering (standard type of letter from the tenth to the seventeenth century) and illustrated. The two colophons have been erased. However, several places have a seal with the following legend in Armenian: "Servant of Christ Lord Toros 1122." The Armenian date 1122 corresponds to the year 1673-1674. The manuscript seems to have been copied at the end of the sixteenth or beginnings of the seventeenth century.
