Nanian Manuscript

Resource Toolbox


(CODEX NANIANUS, designated as U of the Gospels, now in the Library of St. Mark, Venice, where it is numbered I, 8), so called from a former possessor, is an uncial codex of the 9th or 10th century, containing the four Gospels, carefully and luxuriously written in two columns of twenty-one lines each on a 4to page, with ornaments in gold and colors. It has the Eusebian canons in the margin. It accords with the Alexandrine recension. Miinter first sent some extracts from it to Birch, who used them for his edition. Tischendorf collated the MS. in 1843, and Tregelles in 1846, and they compared their work for mutual correction at Leipsic. See Scrivener, Introd. page 117; Tregelles, in Horme's Introd. 4:202.
