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 är märkvärdigt för dess unika storlek: det är det största kända armeniska manuskriptet. Dess nuvarande vikt (utan den saknade bindningen och flera sidor) är 27,5kg. Manuskriptets historia är av stort intresse. Året då det avslutades invaderades Armenien av en seldjukisk armé som plundrade staden Baberd. Manuskriptet som då fanns i staden hamnade i en turkisk domares ägo. Två år senare lade domaren manuskriptet till salu för 5 000 silvermynt. För att köpa homiliariumet samlade munkarna i Moush donationer i ett helt år; år 1205 lyckades de slutligen samla tillräckligt med pengar för att köpa manuskriptet. Det överfördes till Moush och placerades i biblioteket hos Arakelots klostret. Under 1800-talet delades manuskriptet i två delar på grund av lämplighetsfråga och respektive del bands separat. Under första världskriget överfördes både delarna, exkl. bindningar och flera sidor, oberoende av varandra till Etchmiadzin.

The manuscript was begun in the thirteenth century in Bologna, Italy, and finished in 1368 in the Crimea. In the seventeenth century the initial parts of the Old Testament were rewritten and illuminated anew, also in the Crimea. Despite the different dates of their production the three sections of the manuscript produce a remarkably uniform impression due to the fact that each succeeding master apparently tried to remain faithful to the original stylistic principles.�Manuskriptet börjades under 1200-talet i Bologna, Italien och avslutades år 1368 i Krim. Under 1600-talet skrev man om initiala delarna till det Gamla Testamentet och målade om dem, även det i Krim. Trots olika produktionsdatum för de tre sektionerna skapar manuskriptet ett märkvärdigt unifotmt intryck på grund av det faktum att varje efterföljande mästare har tydligen försökt vara troget de ursprungliga stilistika principerna.
