The Moush Homiliarium is remarkable for its unique size: it is the largest known Armenian manuscript. Its present weight (without the missing binding and several folios) is 27.5kg. The history of the manuscript is of considerable interest. In the year it was completed a Seljuk army invaded Armenia and ravaged the town of Baberd. The manuscript which was there at the time of the invasion came into the possession of a Turkish judge. Two years later the judge put it on sale for 5,000 silver coins. To purchase the Homiliarium the monks from Moush collected donations for a whole year; in 1205 they finally amassed the necessary sum and bought the manuscript. It was transferred to Mush and placed in the library of the Arakelots monastery. In the nineteenth century the manuscript was divided into two parts for the sake of convenience and each part was bound separately. During World War I both parts of the manuscript, minus the bindings and several folios, were transferred independently of each other to Echmiadzin.�Moush homiliariumet r mrkvrdigt fr dess unika storlek: det r det strsta knda armeniska manuskriptet. Dess nuvarande vikt (utan den saknade bindningen och flera sidor) r 27,5kg. Manuskriptets historia r av stort intresse. ret d det avslutades invaderades Armenien av en seldjukisk arm som plundrade staden Baberd. Manuskriptet som d fanns i staden hamnade i en turkisk domares go. Tv r senare lade domaren manuskriptet till salu fr 5 000 silvermynt. Fr att kpa homiliariumet samlade munkarna i Moush donationer i ett helt r; r 1205 lyckades de slutligen samla tillrckligt med pengar fr att kpa manuskriptet. Det verfrdes till Moush och placerades i biblioteket hos Arakelots klostret. Under 1800-talet delades manuskriptet i tv delar p grund av lmplighetsfrga och respektive del bands separat. Under frsta vrldskriget verfrdes bde delarna, exkl. bindningar och flera sidor, oberoende av varandra till Etchmiadzin.

Although the general style of the few marginals, headpieces and initials in this Bible is undoubtedly related to that of the 1286 Lectionary, the decor as such is much more modest, and the small slanting script gives an altogether different appearance to the illuminated folios.�ven om den allmnna stilen hos de f marginalerna, verstycken och initialerna i denna bibel r utan tvekan relaterade till det hos 1286 rs Evangeliebok, r dekoren betydligt mer sparsamt och den mindre lutande skriften ger ett vergripande annat utseende till de illustrerade sidorna.
