- This opening page of the Gospel of St. Luke is the only one from the manuscript that has been preserved. The text is framed by a double band, and unusual method of presentation, which gives the appearance of a rug, with the text taking the place of the central motif. On the basis of the style of the script and decoration, the page can be assigned to a provincial school in the region of Melitene and the Taurus Mountains and dated to the middle of the 11th century.
