The Central Museum of Ancient Russian Culture and Art named after Andrei Rublev invites to the exhibitionThe Gospel of Isaac Birev.

The exposition presents to the audience one of the masterpieces of ancient Russian book art of the first half of the 16th century (c. 1531), which later became a model for other manuscript books created in Moscow.

Visitors can not only see this outstanding manuscript, usually accessible only to a narrow circle of specialists, but also learn about the vicissitudes of the fate of its creator. An outstanding bookwriter, miniaturist, Isaac Birev (dates of life unknown) was one of the most significant calligraphers in Russian book writing of the late XV - the first half of the XVI century.
