<p style='text-align: justify;'> This manuscript is a copy of <i>Three Gospels and Acts</i>. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are preceded by introductory texts containing the lives of the Evangelists. One of these, the life of Matthew, is an extract from the Greek translation by Sophronios of Jerome's work <i> De viris illustribus</i>. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript was copied in the first half of the 16th century by a scribe, Paschasios, who signed the copy presenting himself as ἀδελφός, 'brother'; therefore, he probably was a monk. Moreover, he probably was not a native Greek, as suggested by various elements. His script shows a certain hesitancy in the tracing of the forms, and it is very rigid, a typical characteristic of the script of non-proficient scribes. Moreover, interestingly, after the New Testament texts, Paschasios wrote a list of abbreviation in Greek script with their corresponding expanded forms, a Greek alphabet with phonetical transcriptions in Latin script, and an index of terms and expressions found in the preceding text, to which he refers, with notes in Latin. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
