The Codex Vindobonensis Lat. 1235, designated by i or 17 (in the Beuron system), is a 6th-century Latin Gospel Book. The manuscript contains 142 folios (26 cm by 19 cm). The text, written on purple dyed vellum in silver ink (as are codices a b e f j), is a version of the old Latin. The Gospels follow in the Western order.[1]

It has numerous lacunae. Surviving texts contain only: Luke 10:6-23:10; Mark 2:17-3:29; 4:4-10:1; 10:33-14:36; 15:33-40.[2]

The Latin text of the codex is a representative of the Western text-type in itala recension.[3]

Formerly the manuscript belonged to an Augustinian Monastery at Naples. In 1717 it was brought to Vienna together with 94 other manuscripts.[2] It was held in Vienna, in the Hofbibliothek, Lat. 1235). It was examined by Bianchini. The text was edited by Alter, Johannes Belsheim, and Jülicher.[1]

It was named Vindobonensis after Vienna (Lat. 1235), place of its former housing.

Currently it is housed at the Biblioteca Nazionale (Lat. 3) at Naples.[1]
