The present study documents the history of the No. 391 manuscript from the A. S. Uvarov Collection of the Moscow State History Museum. It is a Triodion-Pentecostarion which was commissioned by bishop Theodosius of Rădăuți in 1543 and renewed by another bishop Theodosius (Barbovsky) of Rădăuți in 1603. The author also publishes the hitherto unpublished dedicatory notes of both hierarchs and a brief archaeographical description of the manuscript.
