Minuscule 1078 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), A159 (von Soden),[1] is a 10th-century Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament on parchment. It was adapted for liturgical use. The manuscript is not lacunose.

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 282 parchment leaves (size 19 cm by 14 cm).[2][3] The text is written in one column per page, 23-25 lines per page.[2][4] It contains a commentary[3] and lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical use).[1]

Text[edit]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family Ab.[5] Kurt Aland placed it in Category V.[6]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents the textual family Kx in Luke 1, Luke 10, and Luke 20.[5]

It lacks text of Matthew 16:2b–3. The Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is placed at the end of the Gospel of John.[3] The pericope has an additional scholion at the margin: ευρηται και ετερα εν αν αρχαιος αντιγραφοις απερ συνειδομεν γραψαι προς τω τελει του αυτου ευαγγελιστου α εστιν ταδε. The same scholion has codex 1076 (with two differences - το for τω and ευαγγελιου for ευαγγελιστου).[3]

History[edit]

Caspar René Gregory dated the manuscript to the 10th century.[3] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 10th century.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by C. R. Gregory (1078e). Gregory saw it in 1886.[3]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the Great Lavra (A' 12), in Athos.[2][4]
