Lectionary 214

Lectionary 214, designated by siglum 214 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 12th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it by 239evl.[3]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 144 parchment leaves (24.5 cm by 20 cm).[3][4] The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in two columns per page, 23 lines per page.[1][2] The capital letters are written in red. It contains musical notes and pictures.[3][4] It contains the Pericope Adulterae.[4]

One leaf on paper was added in the 15th century; it has 30 leaves palimpsest, having under the Church lessons fragments of legends relating to Saints in the Menologion, including the apocryphal Apodemia of Barnabas.[3][4]

There are daily lessons from Easter to Pentecost.[1]


Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 13th century, Gregory dated it to the 12th or 13th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 12th century.[1][2]

Of the history of the codex nothing is known until the year 1864, when it was in the possession of a dealer at Janina in Epeiros. It was then purchased from him by a representative of Baroness Burdett-Coutts (1814–1906), a philanthropist,[5] together with other Greek manuscripts.[4] They were transported to England in 1870-1871.[6] The manuscript was presented by Burdett-Coutts to Sir Roger Cholmely's School, and was housed at the Highgate (Burdett-Coutts I. 2), in London.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 239) and Gregory (number 214). Gregory saw it in 1883.[4]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[7]

Currently the owner of the codex is unknown. The last place if its housing was Sotheby's.[1][2]
