Minuscule 177 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), α 106 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 11th century.[2] Formerly it was labelled by 179a, 128p, and 82r. It has marginalia.

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the Acts of the Apostles, Pauline epistles, and Book of Revelation on 225 parchment leaves (size 26.5 cm by 21 cm).[2] The text is written in one column per page, in 25 lines per page.[2]

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

It contains prolegomena, fragments of the Eusebian Canon tables, numbers of στιχοι at the end of each book, and marginal notes to the Pauline epistles.[3] It has also a treatise of Pseudo-Dorotheus on the Seventy disciples and twelve apostles (as codices 82, 93, 459, 613, 617, 699).[4]

Text[edit]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[5]

The text is very close to the Textus Receptus.[4] It contains the Comma Johanneum (in 1 John 5:7) at the margin added in the 17th or 18th century.

History[edit]

The manuscript once belonged to Zomozerab, the Bohemian. The portion of the manuscript which contains the text of the Apocalypse was collated by Franz Delitzsch.[4][6] C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1887.[3]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[7] Formerly it was labelled by 179a, 128p, and 82r. In 1908 Gregory gave the number 177 to it.[1]

It is currently housed at the Bavarian State Library (Gr. 211), at Munich.[2]
