Writings of the Patriarch Matthew I, John Chrysostom and other texts.

The cataloguing (it appears only in Gardthausen’s catalogue [see  internet links]) for this ms. is incomplete. It does not appear in Kamil and is also not listed in Clarke’s checklist of manuscripts photographed during the Library of Congress’ expedition to Sinai.

The manuscript itself is in rather bad condition; many of the folios have (what looks like) water damage on their top halves.

A note on fol. 43r dates the ms. to A.D. 1619.

Texts include:

Matthew I, Patriarch of Constantinople,Testamentum

Fol. 1r: Inc:  Πολλῶν ὄντων οἷς ὁ κατὰ Θεὸν χαρακτηρίζεται βίος ἕν τι καὶ τοῦτο δια φερόντως μέγιστον καὶ λυσιτελέστατον…[TLG no: 4403.001]

John Chrysostom, Contra Theatra

Fol. 44r: Inc: Πολλοὺς οἶμαι τῶν πρῴην καταλιπόντων ἡμᾶς καὶ πρὸς τὰ θέατρα τῆς παρανομίας αὐτομολησάντων παρεῖναι τήμερον…[TGL no: 2062.217]

 At the end of the ms. a portion of a menologium has been appended with the folios upside down.
