The Etchmiadzin Gospel is one of the treasures of Armenian art. This paper describes it thoroughly in the course of arguing with the conventional view of its origin: that the illustrations had been copied by same scribe, John, who copied the manuscript, and that they are copies of sixth-century Syriac illuminations now lost. Der Nessessian argues that they are ninth-century compositions, newly drawn in Armenia, by an artist who need not have been the scribe. With 38 plates of the manuscript and comparanda, this reprint will appeal to scholars of art history and Armenian studies.
