Minuscule 107 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 344 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century.[2]


The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 351 parchment leaves (21.7 cm by 16.7 cm). The text is written in one column per page, 18-22 lines per page.[2] The initial letters in gold.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, the τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top of the pages.[3]

It contains tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel, and pictures.[4]

It was written by more than one scribe. The first page of Matthew is written in gold.[3]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family Kx.[5] Aland placed it in Category V.[6] According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents mixed Byzantine text in Luke 1, textual family Kx in Luke 20, in Luke 10 no profile was made.[5]


It was examined by Wettstein, Griesbach, and Scholz.[4] Wettsteins's and Griesbach's 107 is Gregory's minuscule 201. Scholz dated the manuscript to the 14th century.[3]

C. R. Gregory saw it in 1883.[3]

It is housed at the Bodleian Library (E. D. Clarke 6) at Oxford.[2]
