The Original New Testament

The binding of dark brown leather, which bears a stamped representation of the Virgin, is slightly worn at the corners. At the beginning there is the customary Protheoria, together with the methods of chant of Gregorios Bounis Alyatis and the maistor Ioannis Koukouzelis. The Anthologia contains a choice selection of compositions by the principal Byzantine melodists as well as the contemporaries of Germanos, Bishop of New Patras. Germanos's name appears in many of the entries (see principally fol. 48v), and he certainly includes his own compositions. The initials are elegantly decorated.
