Minuscule 903 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 4002 (von Soden),[1] is a 14th-century Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament on paper. It has marginalia. The manuscript has survived in complete condition.

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 233 paper leaves (size 18 cm by 13 cm), with some lacunae.[2] The text is written in one column per page, 22 lines per page.[2][3][4]

Text[edit]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine. Kurt Aland did not place it in any Category.[5]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it has a mixture of the text-types in Luke 1, Luke 10, and Luke 20. It is related to M groups.[6]

History[edit]

According to the colophon it was written in 1382 by Theoleiptus in Damietta.[4] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 14th century.[3]

It was examined and described by Victor Gardthausen (as 421).[4][7]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Gregory (903e).[4] It was not on the Scrivener's list, but it was added to his list by Edward Miller in the 4th edition of A Plain Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament.[8]

One leaf of the codex was brought in the 19th century to Petersburg. The leaf contains text of the Gospel of John 1:1-15. In 1908 Gregory gave number 2168 to it.[1] It was later erased and included to minuscule 903 on the list Gregory-Aland.[2][3]

The leaf from Petersburg was examined by Kurt Treu.[9] Jacob Greelings collated the text of the Gospel of Matthew and it was included as appendix C to work of R. Chaplin "Family E and Its Allies in Matthew".[10]

It is not cited in critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS4,[11] NA28[12]).

232 folios of the manuscript is housed at the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria (451). One leaf is housed at the National Library of Russia (Gr. 398) in Saint Petersburg.[2][3]
