New Manuscripts from the National Library of Greece

1/28/2016

New manuscripts digitized by the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) have just been added to our searchable collection. These include 10 manuscripts from the National Library of Greece (NLG) in Athens, the site of our ongoing digitization project for 2015–16.

Studying a NLG MS

  • GA 776: 11th or 12th century minuscule of the Gospels. Has the pericope adulterae written in a smaller font on the outside margins surrounding the main text, seemingly by a later hand.
  • GA 788: 11th century minuscule of the Gospels.
  • GA Lect 431: 15th century lectionary of the Gospels.
  • GA Lect 434: 12th century lectionary of the Gospels, with magnificent headpieces and icons.
  • GA Lect 436: 16th century lectionary of the Gospels.
  • GA Lect 441: 11th century lectionary of the Gospels, which seems to have been used rather infrequently.
  • GA Lect 1514: 17th century lectionary of the Gospels and Apostolos. The manuscript’s text appears to have been hardly touched, perhaps indicating that this was a privately owned liturgical text.
  • GA Lect 1521: 15th century lectionary of the Gospels. This codex also contains GA Lect 2006.
  • GA Lect 1533: 9th century majuscule lectionary. The manuscript is written with very large letters, indicating that it was intended to be read in the divine services.
  • GA Lect 2006: 14th century lectionary, consisting of four leaves at the front and back of the same codex as GA Lect 1521. 

These images have now become part of our growing searchable library, which gives everyone free access to the best available digital images of New Testament manuscripts.
