Ostromir Gospelsby Cornelia Cecilia Eglantine
The Ostromir Gospels (Russian: Остромирово Евангелие) is the second oldest dated East Slavic book (it was considered the first before the Novgorod Codex was discovered in 2000). It was created by deacon Gregory for his patron, Posadnik Ostromir of Novgorod, in 1056 or 1057, probably as a gift for a monastery. The book is a illuminated manuscript Gospel Book lectionary containing only feast-day and Sunday readings. It is written in a large uncial hand in two columns on 294 parchment sheets of the size 20 x 24 cm. Each page contains eighteen lines. The book is concluded by the scribe's notice about the circumstances of its creation.
