# Codex Palatinus

The Codex Palatinus, designated by e or 2 (in Beuron system), is a 4th or 5th century Latin Gospel Book. The text, written on purple dyed vellum in gold and silver ink (as are codices a b f i j), is a version of the old Latin. Most of the manuscript is in the Austrian National Library at Vienna (Lat. 1185), with one leaf at the Trinity College, Dublin (N. 4. 18), and one leaf at the British Library (Add. 40107) at London.[1]

## Description

The manuscript contains the text of the four Gospels. The Gospels follow in the Western order.[1]

It has numerous lacunae.[2]

The Latin text of the codex is basically African recension, but it has been strongly Europeanized.[3]

In John 1:34 it reflects ὁ ἐκλεκτός along with the manuscripts $\mathfrak{P}$5, $\mathfrak{P}$106, א, b, ff2, syrc, syrs.[4]

## History

The manuscript was acquired from Trent between 1800 and 1829.[2] It was edited by Constantin von Tischendorf (Evangelicum Palatinum ineditum, Leipzig 1847), Johannes Belsheim, and Jülicher.[1][5]
