The illuminated proskynetaria were compiled between 1634 and 1748 and are pious guides to the Christian –mainly– monuments of Palestine where they combine religious lore and historical data. The illustrations are of particular importance. These are small-format calligraphic manuscript codices, each containing from 50 to 100 miniatures.

  • Product Description

    This book is devoted to a category of manuscripts known as proskynetaria which were used as guides mainly in the 17th and 18th centuries.
    The miniatures illustrating them depict towns and sacred places, churches and monasteries, caves, mountains and lakes, as well as events from the Holy Scriptures and ecclesiastical history and tradition. The proskynetaria are brilliant examples of folk art that form a basic source for Palestine during one period of its history.
