Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts : Gospel of Mark

Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, MS 224 contains the <i>Gospel of St Mark</i> in Greek, copied by Georgios Hermonymus of Sparta in the late 15th century, when he was working in Paris. As Kalatzi has shown by relating the signatures, the manuscript was originally the second part of a complete <i>Tetraevangelium</i> that contained all Four Gospels, and which was dismembered in the early 16th century. The other three parts are: <div><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://medieval.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/catalog/manuscript_2466'>Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS. Canon.

Mondrain (1998), p. 46).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Georgios Hermonymos (c. 1430-1511), in addition to being a copyist, was a diplomat: he was sent in England by Pope Sixtus IV. He was also the first lecturer in Greek at the Collège de Sorbonne in Paris. In addition to Corpus MS 224, shown here, he also copied the following manuscripts: <div><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-KK-00005-00035/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Kk.5.35</a><br /><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-KK-00006-00023/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Kk.6.23</a><br /><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-LL-00002-00013/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Ll.2.13</a><br /><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-NN-00004-00002/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Nn.4.2</a><br /></div><br /></p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Folios 26r-56v (containing Mk 8:17-end) have not been photographed due to the fragility of the binding.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
