The liturgical Apostle contains texts of the New Testament – the Book of Acts and the Letters of the Apostles. The texts in this book are arranged according to the church holidays, starting with Easter. The book was read (and is still read) during the service before the Gospels and is an important book for Christians. There is an entry at the book by its former owner Vas’ka Bahdanau of 1694.
