Summary/Abstract: Until recently the Gospel manuscript from the Russian National Library in St Petersburg, MS Q.п.І.3, now dated to the mid-14th century, was almost not known. It was found that its teratological headpiece on f. 85r is similar to a headpiece in the Four Gospels NBKM 1356 of about the same period. The compositions, though stemming from a common prototype, differ in their details. Being found in manuscripts of obviously different origin, they bring forth a number of issues such as the attribution of the two South Slavonic Tetraevangelia, their interdependence and relations with manuscripts and centres where the model patterns were used and copied in three 17th-century illuminated Gospels.
