Minuscule 82 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), O1 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Paleographically it has been assigned to the 10th century.[2] Formerly it was labelled by 10a, 12p, and 2r.[3] It has marginalia.


The codex contains the text of the Acts, Catholic epistles, Paul, Rev., with a commentary, on 246 parchment leaves (size 20.6 cm by 16 cm). The text is written in one column per page, 28 lines per page.[2] The manuscript is neatly written.[4]

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

It contains Prolegomena, tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each book, subscriptions at the end of each book, numbers of στιχοι, scholia at the margin, and other matter – treatise of Pseudo-Dorotheus about 12 apostles and 72 disciples of Jesus (as codices 93, 177, 459, 613, 617, 699).[3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[5]

According to Scrivener its value in Apocalypse is considerable.[4]


The manuscript was examined and described by Wettstein, Scholz, and Paulin Martin.[6] It was used by Westcott and Hort.

C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1885.[3]

Formerly it was labelled by 10a, 12p, and 2r.[3] In 1908 Gregory gave for it number 82.[1]

It is currently housed in at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 237), at Paris.[2]
