The facsimile is the best copy (replica) of Miroslav's Gospel, with authentically reproduced parchment, manuscript, initials and banners, but also with all damages that occurred during the 800 years long life of this book.
The publishing of the set Miroslav's Gospel - facsimile edition finally initiated the restoration and conservation of this invaluable document of Serbian culture and one of the most significant monuments of European cultural heritage. Also, the pages of the Gospel were refined. This facsimile has a specific historical and credential value as well, since the manuscript is presented in the same form and condition in which it existed intact for eight hundred years.
