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.

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.
