Long time ago when the sun and the sky were lower and closer a princess lived. She wanted to make a wonder book – a book of no seen beauty. Wise monks agreed to assist her. They were drawing letters from the Holy Bible with sophisticated ornaments on its parchment pages. While they were making this wonder book, a lot of time had passed. They completed their work at a monastery. It’s been a long time the princess and monks died, the monastery vanished. The book of wonder beauty has survived through times and has become an object of worship. Its name – the Peresopnytsia Gospel.
