Minuscule 707 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε152 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 11th century. The manuscript is lacunose.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it by 606e.[5]

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 150 parchment leaves (size 25.5 cm by 19 cm),[3][6] with only one small lacuna in Mark 16:19-20 (after και).[5]

The text is written in one column per page, 27 lines per page.[3] It has ornamental headpieces and decorated initials.

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια, which numbers are given the left margin, and their τιτλοι at the top; there is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections (Mark 233, 16:8), with a references to the Eusebian Canons. It contains subscriptions (to Matthew), and pictures.[5][6] It has a few lectionary markings on the margin added by a later hand.[5]

According to Scrivener it has "a very unusual style".[5]

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]

The texts of Matthew 16:2b–3, John 5:3.4, Pericope Adulterae (John 8:3-8:11) are marked with an obelus.[6]

History[edit]

Scrivener and Gregory dated the manuscript to the 11th century.[6] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 11th century.[4]

The manuscript was held n Constantinople, where it was bought in 1882.[6]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscript by Scrivener (606) and Gregory (707). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1883.[6]

Actually the manuscript is housed at the Bodleian Library (Auct. T. inf. 2. 6) in Oxford.[3][4]
