Lectionary 207, designated by siglum 207 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 12th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it by 214evl.[3] The manuscript has complex context.


The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 246 parchment leaves (29.3 cm by 22.5 cm).[3][4] The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in two columns per page, 19 lines per page (and more).[1][2] It contains musical notes and pictures.[3][4] The manuscript was written by several hands. One leaf is on paper, two leaves at the beginning and end from the Old Testament (1 Kings 17,12).[3]

There are daily lessons from Easter to Pentecost.[1]


Scrivener and Gregory dated it to the 12th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 12th century.[1][2]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 214) and Gregory (number 207). Gregory saw it in 1883.[4]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[5]

Currently the codex is located in the Bodleian Library (Wake 14) at Oxford.[1][2]
