Minuscule 844 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε505 (von Soden),[1][2] is a 15th-century Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament on parchment. The manuscript is not complete.

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 232 parchment leaves (size 13.5 cm by 10.3 cm) with some lacunae[3] (Matthew 1:1-10; Mark 1:1-10; 15:4 [14:60]-16:20; Luke 1:1-12; John 1:1-16)[4] The text is written in one column per page, 20 lines per page.[3][5] It contains one fragment of Apostolos. The portraits of the Evangelists and the decorated headpieces were lost.[1]

The text is divided according to the Ammonian Sections, whose numbers are given art the margin, but without references to the Eusebian Canons.[4]

It contains the tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel, and lectionary markings at the margin, Synaxarion, Menologion, and subscriptions at the end of each of the Gospels.[1][4]

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.[6] Kurt Aland the Greek text of the codex placed in Category V.[7] According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents mixed text in Luke 1 (fragmentary), mixture of the Byzantine families in Luke 10, textual cluster 1519 in Luke 20.[6]

The Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is marked by an obelus.[4]

History[edit]

C. R. Gregory dated the manuscript to the 15th century. Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 15th century.[5]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Gregory (844e). It was examined by Oscar von Gebhardt in 1882.[4]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the University of Padua (Ms. 695), in Padua.[3][5]
