Instead of the usual method of incorporating the illustrations into the text, adopted by most Cilician artists, Sargis Pidzak resorts to a compromise between the Oriental custom of grouping all the illustrations together and placing them before the text of the manuscript in a separate fascicle, and the Byzantine tradition of preceding each of the four Gospels with a full-page illustration: he places two miniatures before each of the Gospels. Apart from these, the manuscript contains a great number of marginal historiated miniatures which form a kind of reduced illustrative cycle. Thus, the motif of The Annunciation is represented only by the figure of the archangel, the episode of The Presentation in the Temple by an outline of a small church, etc.�Istllet fr den vanliga metoden fr inarbetnignen av illustrationer in i texten, anvnt av de flesta kilikiska konstnrer, Sargis Pidzak anvnder sig av en kompromiss mellan orientaliska seder fr gruppering av alla illustrationer tillsammans och deras placering innan manuskriptets text i en separat fascikel, och den bysantinska traditionen fr fregngen av var och en av de fyra evangelierna med fullsidiga illustrationer: han placerar tv minatyrer innan varje evangelium. Fruom dessa, innehller manuskriptet ett stort antal illustrerade miniatyrer i marginalen, vilka formar en sorts reducerad illustrativ cykel. Drmed presenteras motiven fr Jungfrus bebdelse endast med figuren fr rkengeln, episoden fr Presentationen i templet, genom konturen av en liten kyrka etc.
