Minuscule 167 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 305 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century.[2] It has marginalia.

Description[edit]

The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 264 parchment leaves (size 12.5 cm by 8.5 cm).[2] The text is written in one column per page, in 25 lines per page.[2] The initial letters in gold, the ink is brown.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and the τιτλοι (titles) at the top of the pages.[3]

It contains lists of the κεφαλαια (lists of contents) before each Gospel, subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, and pictures (added by later hand).[3][4]

The Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is marked by an obelus.[3]

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 Kr.[5] Aland placed it in Category V.[6]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it belongs to the textual family Kr in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made. It creates textual cluster 167.[5]

History[edit]

It was examined by Birch (about 1782) and Scholz (1794–1852). C. R. Gregory saw it in 1886.[3]

It is currently housed at the Vatican Library (Barb. gr. 287), at Rome.[2]
