This is the label from that exhibition:
This small book contains the Christian New Testament in Church Slavonic. Although this is a manuscript with hand-drawn illustrations, the artist attempted to mimic the look of woodcuts found in printed books.
St. Matthew writing his Gospel
This small manuscript contains the New Testament translated into Slavonic. It contains five full-page miniatures: a scene of the Crucifixion at the beginning and portraits of the four Evangelists before each of the Gospel texts. Although this is a manuscript with hand-drawn illustrations, the artist attempted to mimic the look of woodcuts found in printed books, which had just started to be produced in the second half of the fifteenth-century.
