The decline of Cilician miniature art towards the end of the thirteenth century is quite evident in this manuscript. It concerns the Evangelists' portraits and to an even greater extent the decor of the illuminated folios. The figures in the miniatures lose their suave elegance, the colours are no longer rich or refined. At the same time the main principles of figural and facial treatment and the traditions of the compositional arrangement of the scenes, inherited from the 1280s, remain almost unchanged.�Nedgngen hos kilikisk miniatyr mot slutet av 1200-talet r rtt uppenbart i detta manuskript. Det rr sig om evengelisternas portrtt och i en nnu hgre grad om dekoren av den illustrerade sidorna. Figurerna i miniatyrerna frlorar sin milda elegans, frgerna r inte lngre rika eller frfinade. Samtidigt kvarblir principerna fr figurernas och ansiktenas behandling och traditionerna fr det kompositionella arrangemanget hos scenen, rvt frn 1280-talet, s gott som intakt.

Although on the whole the miniatures in the manuscript conform to the current iconographic tradition, the treatment of characters and the general artistic manner bear a clear mark of the author's individuality. The latter is first and foremost manifest in his tentative but quite successful attempt to render the visual effect of depth and volume by means of the chiaroscuro technique, which means that he was familiar with contemporary Italian art.�ven om i sin helhet motsvarar miniatyrerna i manuskriptet den ikonografiska traditionen, br behandlingen av karaktrerna och det generella konstnrliga sttet ett tydligt mrke tillhrande frfattarens individualitet. Den senare syns frst och frmst i hans tentativa men ganska framgngsrika frsk att terge den visuella effekten av djup och volym genom klrobskyr teknik, vilket innebr att han var bekant med samtida italiensk konst.
