Homilies of Ioannes Chrysostomos

c. 1078
Manuscript (Ms. Coislin 79)
Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris

This codex contains 33 homilies of Ioannes Chrysostomos. At the beginning of the manuscript, there are four full-page introductory miniatures. On folio 2v, the emperor receives the codex from the author Ioannes Chrysostomos, standing at the left.

The manuscript was first intended to be dedicated to Michael VII (1071-1078), but after his death it was given to Nikephoros Botaneiates (1078-1081) instead. This explains some adjustments in the miniatures.
