Western Medieval Manuscripts : Gospel book

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This <i>Gospel book</i> was copied at the end of 15th century by Georgios Hermonymos of Sparta (ca. 1430-ca. 1511). In addition to being a copyist, Hermonymos was also a diplomat (he was sent to England by Pope Sixtus IV) and the first lecturer in Greek at the Collège de Sorbonne in Paris.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Hermonymos also copied: <ul><li><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-KK-00006-00023/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Kk.6.23</a></li><li><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-LL-00002-00013/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Ll.2.13</a></li><li><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-NN-00004-00002/1'>Cambridge, University Library, MS Nn.4.2</a></li><li><a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, MS 224</a></li></ul>. Kk.5.35 and Ll.2.13 have in common the Gospels and two final texts by Psellus and Gregory of Nazianzus. It is possible that the two manuscripts are related in terms of textual transmission.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Soden ε 520, Gregory-Aland 30<sup>abs</sup>.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
