Alaverdi Four Gospels (A-484), 1054

This collection is of an enormous importance as it is widely acknowledged that the Georgian manuscript heritage contains unique material for Byzantine cultural development. These works have preserved the samples lost in Greek and other languages, while preserving important references to Byzantine authors that replenish the life and work of those writers and unknown writers of the Byzantine literary history. This collection is unique and is deemed to transcend the boundaries of time and culture.
