Tserun belongs to a group of Vaspurakan artists whose work was entirely based on and inspired by the local traditions of book illumination. Tserun had numerous pupils and followers, so that the term "Tserunian style" came to be adopted in specialist literature.�Tserun tillhör en grupp avVaspourakans konstnärer vars verk var helt baserat på och inspirerat av de lokala traditionerna för bokmålning. Tserun hade flera elever och följare, så att begreppet "Tseruniska stilen" kom att antas i speciella litteratur.

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.

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.�Även om den allmänna stilen hos de få marginalerna, överstycken och initialerna i denna bibel är utan tvekan relaterade till det hos 1286 års Evangeliebok, är dekoren betydligt mer sparsamt och den mindre lutande skriften ger ett övergripande annat utseende till de illustrerade sidorna.
