Minuscule 29 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 1022 (Soden).[1] It is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, written on vellum. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 11th-century.[2][3]

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 169 parchment leaves (18.1 cm by 14.1 cm).[2] In the three later Gospels some leaves lost (Matthew 1-15; Mark 16:15-20; Luke 4:28-5:7), and were supplied in the 15th-century by paper leaves.[4][5] The text is written in one column per page, 30 lines per page.[2] It is beautifully but carelessly written by a Latin scribe.[4] The initial letters are written in colour.[5]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and the τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top of the pages.There is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections (in Mark 234, the last in 16:9) with references to the Eusebian Canons.[5]

It contains the Prolegomena of Cosmas, Eusebian Canon tables at the beginning, subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, liturgical books with hagiographies (Synaxarion and Menologion), and scholia at the margin.[5]

It contains corrections on the margin made by prima manu.[5]

Text[edit]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland place it in Category V.[6]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents textual family Kx in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made. It was corrected toward Πb.[7]

History[edit]

F. H. A. Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 12th-century. Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 10th-century.[2][3]

The manuscript was brought from Greece.[4] It was added to the list of the New Testament manuscripts by J. J. Wettstein, who gave it the number 29.[8]

The manuscript was examined by John Mill (Colbertinus 3). Mill compares its text with that of Minuscule 71 and found some affinities. Scholz (1794-1852) examined only texts of Mark 1-5 and John 5-8.[5] It was examined and described by Paulin Martin.[9] C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1885.[5]

It is currently housed at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 89) at Paris.[2][3]
