This complete tetraevangelion, containing all four Gospel books, one of the most impressive extant manuscripts from thirteenth-century Armenia, representing the flourishing of Armenian culture following a century of devastation by Greek and Turkish armies. Named after the unusual red color used in many of its illuminations, the Red Gospels of Ganjasar contains 175 illuminations in the margins. The placement of illuminations in the margins reflects ancient Armenian customs, in which inserting illustrative miniatures directly into the text would have violated its sacred nature. But the periphery of the page is inhabited by arabesques, flowers, birds, and other figures. On this opening within the Gospel of John we see a playful vignette of a boy climbing a tree.
