Minuscule 100 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), A11 (von Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 10th century.[2] The manuscript has complex contents and full marginalia.


The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 374 parchment leaves (size 23.5 cm by 18 cm) with a commentary. The text is written in one column per page, 39-45 lines per page.[2]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles) at the top. There is also a division according to the smaller Ammonian Sections, with references to the Eusebian Canons.[3]

It contains the Eusebian Canon tables at the beginning, lists of the κεφαλαια (lists of contents) before each Gospel, lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical use), pictures, and many corrections with scholia added by a later hand.[4] The Synaxarion, Menologion, and αναγνωσεις (lessons) were added by a later hand. The text of the Gospels is surrounded by a catena.[3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[5] It was not examined by using the Claremont Profile Method.[6]

The text of John 21:25 is omitted.[3]


The manuscript once belonged to Paul de Eibiswald. Wagenseil used it in Hungary for John 8:6.[3] It the 15th century it belonged to John Pannonius Bishop of Pécs. It was examined by Wettstein (possibly 100). It was edited in 1860 in Pesht by Samuel Markfi.[7]

It is currently housed at the Eötvös Loránd University (Cod. Gr. 1), at Budapest.[2]
