Lectionary 320 (Gregory-Aland), designated by siglum 320 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 14th century. The manuscript has not survived in complete condition.

Description[edit]

The original codex contained lessons from the Gospel of John, Matthew, and Luke (Evangelistarium),[1] on 196 parchment leaves. The leaves are measured (21.7 cm by 14.6 cm). Some leaves of the codex at the end were lost.[2][3] It was written by several hands.[4]

The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in one column per page, 19-20 lines per page.[2][3] It has not musical notes.[1]

The codex contains weekday Gospel lessons from Easter to Pentecost and Saturday/Sunday Gospel lessons for the other weeks.[2]

On folio 66 there is a note in red ink recording the work of a certain Makarios, monk and priest, also called Zographos.[5] The note states:

Μακάριος Μοναχὸς ἀμάρτολος ἱερεὺς
οὗτος τὸ ἐπήκλην ζογράφος διὰ σινεργασίας
Καὶ μόχθου ἐπ(λ)ιρόθη ἡ βήβλο(ς) αὔτι.

History[edit]

Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 13th century, Gregory dated it to the 14th century.[1] It has been assigned by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research to the 14th century.[2][3]

It was purchased from Mr Henry Stevens, on 12 April 1856.[1][5]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (268e)[4] and Gregory (number 320e).[1] Gregory saw it in 1883.[1]

The manuscript was mentioned by Catalogue of Additions to the Manuscripts in the British Museum, 1854-1860,[6] and by M. Richard.[7]

The codex is housed at the British Library (Add. 21261) in London.[2][3]

The fragment is not cited in critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS4,[8] NA28[9]).
