Lectionary 292, designated by siglum 292 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 9th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it as 189e.[3]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospel of John, Matthew, and Luke (Evangelistarium), on 277 parchment leaves (35.5 cm by 26.5 cm).[4] The first Gospel lesson begins in John 16:28.[5]

The text is written in Greek uncial letters, in two columns per page, 24 lines per page.[1][4] The manuscript contains weekday Gospel lessons.[1] It contains music notes, the initial letters are rubricated.[3] It contains subscriptions.

In Matthew 23:8 it has reading from prima manu καθηγητης, the corrector changed it into διδασκαλος (teacher).[6] The first reading is supported by the manuscripts: Codex Sinaiticus, Bezae, Regius, Koridethi, 1010, 1241, 1424, Byz. The second reading is supported by the manuscripts: Sinaiticus1, Vaticanus, 33, 892.[7]

It lacks the Pericope Adulterae (John 8:1-11).[4]


Scholz dated the manuscript to the 6th century,[5] Scrivener and Gregory dated it to the 10th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 9th century.[1][2]

Epiphanius Magister Paschales presented the manuscript in 1091 to the monastery of the Birth of God. It was housed in Cyprus (between 1438-1605).[4]

The manuscript was examined by Constantin von Tischendorf in 1843, who gave some extracts from the codex in his Anecdota.[8]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 189e) and Gregory (number 292e). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1884.[4]

The manuscript is cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[9]

Currently the codex is housed at the Bibliothèque municipale, 10 (L 11) in Carpentras.[1][2]
