Abstract

This image originally faced the beginning of the Acts of the Apostles in a late eleventh-century psalter and New Testament in Mount Athos, Vatopedi Monastery MS 762. It seems likely that in this manuscript, the scribe and illuminator were the same person.

Text Note

Originally fol. 211 in Mount Athos, Vatopedi MS 762; John 21:16-25

Hand note

Elegant sloping cursive; rubrics added by a later, fifteenth-century hand

Decoration Note

One full-page miniature
