The Original New Testament

A magnificent, monumental codex, this late Byzantine Papadike combines the traditional settings of almost all the best-known Byzantine composers with those of the major late Byzantine composers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It consists of 744 leaves of good quality paper and is in perfect condition. It was written by Anastasios Vaias, a student of the protopsaltis Panagiotis Chalatzoglou, between 1767 and 1770 (see fol. 403v and 734v). Binding of light-crimson leather and wooden boards with gold stamped decoration. Very clear script. Elegant headings and lovely plain initials.
