Четвероевангелие, последняя четверть XV века

Illuminated Russian Aprakos, or Gospel Lectionary, Russia, 16th century. This is an early manuscript in Old Church Slavonic, the official language of the Russian Orthodox Church, called an Aprakos [ah-prah-kohs], which is the Russian name for a Gospel Lectionary. In an Aprakos, the text of the gospels is not arranged according to their usual placement in the Bible, but rather according to the order in which they would be read throughout the church calendar.
