History[edit]

The manuscript was written by Markus, a scribe.[5] It was brought from Sinai to Berlin by Heinrich Brugsch along with the codex 654 and Minuscule 658.[5] Gregory saw the manuscript in 1887.[5] It was housed in Berlin (Konig. Bibl. Gr. Oktavo 3).[5] One leaf of the codex was brought to Petersburg in 1912.[7] Kurt Treu examined one leaf of the codex (housed in Petersburg).[8]

At the end of 1943 year has increased the frequency of the bombing of Berlin. The Prussian State Library sent many collections out of Berlin to be sheltered in Silesia for safekeeping. As the result of postwar border changes some of these collections were found in Poland (among them 266 folios of minuscule 653). They were moved to the Jagiellonian University Library.[9]

Actually 266 folios of the manuscript are housed at the Biblioteka Jagiellońska (Fonds der Berliner Hss., Graec. Octavo 3), in Kraków. One folio of the codex is housed at the National Library of Russia (Gr. 292) in Saint Petersburg.[2][3]
