History[edit]

The manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 12th or 14th century.[6]

Some parts of the manuscript were written in different time by different scribes. The leaves 1-103 with text of Acts-Jude 24 were written in the 12th century; the leaves 104-191 with the text of Jude 24 - Colossians were written in the 13th century; the leaves 192-228 with the text 1 Thessalonians-Philemon were written in the 12th century; the leaves 229-254 with the text of the Apocalypse and scholia were written in the 14th century.[4]

The leaf with the text of the Acts 1:1-13 was written in the 16th century.[4]

The manuscript was examined and described by Giuseppe Bianchini.[7] It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Johann Martin Augustin Scholz, who slightly examined the manuscript.[8] Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[4] Herman C. Hoskier collated the text of the Apocalypse.[9]

Formerly it was labeled by 166a, 204p, and 22r. In 1908 Gregory gave the number 632 to it.[1]

The manuscript currently is housed at the Biblioteca Vallicelliana (B. 86), at Rome.[2][6]
