<p style='text-align: justify;'> This manuscript is formed of two parts: <i>A collection of letters by Theophylact of Ohrid and a Church History</i>.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Part I contains the collection of letters by Theophylact, bishop of Ohrid (ca.1050-after 1126), who was a pupil of the famous Byzantine polymath Michael Psellos and deacon of Hagia Sophia. It was copied around the middle of the 16th century by the scribe Manuel Provataris (also known as Emmanuel Graecus). Born in Crete, Provataris was <i> Scriptor</i> at the Vatican Library from 1546-1571. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Part II contains a Church History (<i> Historia Ecclesiastica</i>). Traditionally attributed to Gelasius of Cyzicus on the basis of a mention by patriarch Photius in his <i> Bibliotheca</i> (see Hansen (2002), pp. ix-xii), this work consists mainly of a collection of Acts of the Nicene Council (325 CE). This part of the manuscript was copied from Torino, Biblioteca Nazionale Universitaria, B.I.1 , a codex which was owned by Cardinal Domenico Grimani (see A. Diller, H.D. Saffrey, L.G. Westerink, <i> Bibliotheca Graeca Manuscripta Cardinalis Dominici Grimani (1461-1523)</i> (Venice, 2003), no. 391 p. 165) and was brought with his collection to the monastery of S. Antonio di Castello in Venice after his death in 1523 ( Hansen (2002), p. xxv). Trinity MS B.3.18 was used as the exemplar for the copy of the text in <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-GONVILLE-AND-CAIUS-00788/1'> Cambridge, Gonville and Caius College, 788 </a>, which was written between the second half of the 16th century and the beginning of the 17th, and for Città del Vaticano, Biblioteca Apostolica Varicana, Reg. gr. 73 ( Hansen 2002, p. xxvi).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
