Lectionary 306 (Gregory-Aland), designated by siglum 306 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century. The manuscript is lacunose.

Description[edit]

The original codex contained lessons from the Gospels (Evangelistarium), on 136 parchment leaves, with some lacunae. The leaves are measured (16.5 cm by 13.5 cm).[1] The first 54 other leaves were lost. The additional lessons about the season of Epiphany were inserted by other hand.[2]

The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in one column per page, 16-18 lines per page.[3][4]

It contains music notes.[2]

History[edit]

Gregory and Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 13th century.[1] It has been assigned by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research (INTF) to the 13th century.[3][4]

It was bought from Quaritch for the university in 1874.[1]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Frederick Henry Ambrose Scrivener (292e)[2] and Caspar René Gregory (number 306e).[1] It was examined by Fenton John Anthony Hort. Gregory saw it in 1883.[1]

The codex is housed at the Cambridge University Library (Add. Mss. 1836) in Cambridge.[3][4]
