Minuscule 867 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε400 (von Soden),[1][2] is a 14th-century Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament on parchment. The manuscript has no complex context, and some marginalia.

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 223 parchment leaves (size 16 cm by 11 cm), with one lacuna (Matthew 1:1-6:1). The text is written in one column per page, 20 lines per page.[3][4]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin of the text, but without their τιτλοι (titles) at the top of the pages.[5]

It contains Prolegomena (explanation of using of the Eusebian Canons), tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel with a Harmony, lectionary markings at the margin (for Church reading), αναγνωσεις (lessons), subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, with numbers of stichoi, and numbers of Verses.[5][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 Kr.[7] Kurt Aland the Greek text of the codex placed in Category V.[8] According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents textual family Kr in Luke 1 and Luke 20, as a perfect member of the family. In Luke 10 no profile was made.[7]

The text of the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is marked by an obelus.[5]

History[edit]

F. H. A. Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 15th or 14th century, C. R. Gregory dated it to the 14th century.[6] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 14th century.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (680e)[6] and Gregory (867e). Gregory saw it in 1886.[5]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the Vatican Library (Gr. 1895), in Rome.[3][4]
