Western Medieval Manuscripts : Gospel lectionary

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This fragment consists of the upper portions of four torn folios from a bilingual Greek-Arabic Gospel lectionary, probably copied in the 11th century. The presentation of the text in both Greek and Arabic would suggest that it was produced for a Christian community in the Levant, one which had become predominantly Arabic-speaking but retained Greek as a liturgical language.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>A much larger portion of this manuscript is now St Petersburg, Rossijskaja Nacional'naja biblioteka, MS gr. 84, of 41 folios, which includes the lower parts of these torn folios.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
