Minuscule 347 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 226 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it has been assigned to the 12th century.[2] It has full marginalia.

Description[edit]

The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 245 parchment leaves (23.1 cm by 16.5 cm) with only one lacuna (Matthew 1:1-10). 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) at the top of the pages. There is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections (in Mark 233 Sections - 16:8), with references to the Eusebian Canons (written below Ammonian Section numbers).[3]

It contains Prolegomena, Epistula ad Carpianum, tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel, and lectionary markings at the end of each Gospel (for liturgical use).[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 Kx.[4] Aland placed it in Category V.[5]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents textual family Kx in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made.[4]

The text of the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is placed after John 21:25.[3]

History[edit]

The manuscript was written by Constantin Chrysographus. It was examined by Scholz[6] and Burgon. It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz (1794-1852).[7] C. R. Gregory saw it in 1886.[3]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (R. 35 sup.) in Milan.[2]
