Minuscule 311 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 12th century.[1]


The codex contains the text of the Gospel of Matthew on 357 parchment leaves (35.5 cm by 29 cm) with lacunae (Matthew 1:1-5:4). The text is written in one column per page, in 28 lines per page.[1] The biblical text is surrounded by a catena of Theophylact.[2]

Kurt Aland did not place the Greek text of the codex in any Category.[3]


The manuscript once belonged to Cardinal Mazarin (like codex 14, 305, 313, and 324).[2] It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz (1794-1852).[4] It was examined and described by Paulin Martin.[5] C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1885.[2]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 203) at Paris.[1]
