Minuscule 719 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), Θε24 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on paper. It is dated by a Colophon to the year 1196. The manuscript has complex contents.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it as 824e.[5]


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 314 paper leaves (size 34.5 cm by 26.5 cm).[3][6]

The text is written in one column per page, 34-40 lines per page.[3]

It contains a Theophylact's commentary to the Gospels.[6]

The text was written by two hands.[1] It contains some extracts from Photius and one anonymous author at the end.[1]


The Greek text of the codex is mixed. Kurt Aland did not place it in any Category.[7]

It was not examined by using Claremont Profile Method.[8]

It lacks the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11).[6]


According to the colophon it was written in 1196, by Paulus, a monk.[6][4]

Formerly the manuscript was held in Constantinople. Busbecq brought the manuscript from Constantinople to Vienna.[6]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (824) and Gregory (719). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1887.[6]

At present the manuscript is housed at the Austrian National Library (Theol. gr. 19, fol. 1-314) in Vienna.[3][4]
