Lectionary 57, designated by siglum 57 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on paper leaves. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 15th-century.[1]


The codex is an Euchologium with lessons from the New Testament, on 408 paper leaves (21.5 cm by 15.7 cm).[1] It is a lectionary (Evangelistarion and Apostolos).[2] The text is written in one column per page, in 20 lines per page, in Greek minuscule letters.[1]


In 1515 the manuscript was in Naupia, in 1545 in Venice. It once belonged to Loescher, then to Graf Brühl.[2] It was the last Gospel lectionary added to the list of New Testament manuscript before Johann Martin Augustin Scholz.[3] The manuscript was described by Christian Frederick Matthaei.[2]

The manuscript is sporadically cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[4]

Currently the codex is located in the Saxon State Library (A. 151), in Dresden.[1]
