Minuscule 106 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 1380 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 10th century.[2]

Description[edit]

The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 212 parchment leaves 27 cm by 20.5 cm. The text is written in one column per page, in 22 lines per page.[2]

The Greek text of the codex Kurt Aland did not place in any Category.[3] According to the Claremont Profile Method it belongs to the textual group M106 in Luke 1, Luke 10, and Luke 20.[4]

It contains many readings close to Syriac Philoxenian.[5]

It has unique reading in Matthew 27:62.[6]

In John 7:40 it lacks phrase των λογων τουτων, the reading is supported only by lectionary 44 and Syriac Sinaitic.[7]

History[edit]

Griesbach dated the manuscript to the 10th century.

The manuscript once belonged to Caesar de Missy.[6]

Jackson collated the text of the manuscript for Wettstein in 1748.[8][5] It was examined by Griesbach and wrongly classified by him as a representative of the Alexandrian text-type.[9]

According to Scrivener it was held in the Earl of Winchelsea's Library, but in 1883 Earl of Winchelsea wrote to Gregory that he does not have any Gospel manuscript.[6]

Currently the manuscript is housed in Chester Beatty Library (Ms. W 135), in Dublin.[2]
