Item No: mca0411260
Additional Title: Bible, New Testament
Language: Church Slavonic
Folio Number: ff. 126v-127r
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: St. John writing his Gospel
Notes: 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.
