Minuscule 705 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε360 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century. The manuscript has complex contents.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it by 887e.[5]

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospel of Luke and Gospel of John on 254 parchment leaves (size 23.5 cm by 17 cm).[3][6]

The text is written in one column per page, 18 lines per page.[3]

It contains lists of the κεφαλαια (list of contents) before each Gospel and pictures.[6]

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.[7] Kurt Aland placed it in Category V.[8]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents mixed Byzantine text, related to the textual family Kx in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made.[7]

In Luke 8:21 it reads αυτον instead of αυτους;[6] the reading αυτον is supported by Papyrus 75, and Codex Veronensis.[9]

History[edit]

Scrivener and Gregory dated the manuscript to the 13th century.[6] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 13th century.[4]

In 1521 it was in Gortyna on Crete.[6]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscript by Gregory (705). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1883.[6]

Formerly it was housed in London, in Quaritch (Catalogue 94, No. 146), then it belonged to Hackney, Lord Amherst.[5]

Currently, the manuscript is housed at the Dumbarton Oaks (Ms. 4, acc. no. 74.1) in Washington, D.C..[3][4]
