Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a better understanding of the four Gospels manuscripts through an extensive study that will provide a new dating and makes some assumptions about a possible Syrian-Palestinian origin of these gospels. These observations also give me the opportunity to present some facts about the mid-Byzantine period. The iconography of the Descent from the Cross is enriched through the patristic texts that chronicle the event. These texts complete the Gospel story and allow artists to create a complete iconography that reveals the acceptance of the dual nature of Christ. During the Middle Byzantine period interesting comparisons can be made ​​with the Syriac and Coptic-Arabic manuscripts dating from the thirteenth century. Palestine has enjoyed increasing prosperity through trade as ensuring a close relationship with the capital and the surrounding areas with experienced artistic expansion due to the presence of the Crusaders.The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Gospels; Middle Byzantine period; Syrian-Palestinian origin; crusaders
