New Manuscripts from the National Library of Greece

1/8/2016

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.

New NLG MSS

  • GA 771: 10th century minuscule of the Gospels with extensive commentary. The commentary surrounding the text often appears in the shape of an elaborate cross, with the scribe changing the size of the cross as needed to fit all of the text while maintaining twenty lines per page. This is a mind-boggling achievement for the calculation and planning it must have required.
  • GA 1183: 14th century minuscule of the Gospels with commentary by Theophylact.
  • GA 1700: 17th century minuscule of the Gospels dated to 1623.
  • GA Lect 588: 15th century lectionary of the Gospels and Apostolos.
  • GA Lect 832: 15th century lectionary of the Gospels.
  • GA Lect 1214: 10th century palimpsested majuscule lectionary. This manuscript is the under-text for GA Lect 1235.
  • GA Lect 1222: 12th century lectionary of the Gospels.
  • GA Lect 1235: 13th or 14th century lectionary of the Gospels with majuscule under-text (GA Lect 1214).
  • GA Lect 1802: 17th century lectionary of the Gospels dated to 1602.
  • GA Lect 1806: 15th century lectionary of the Gospels and Apostolos dated to 1460.
