<p style='text-align: justify;'>This is a composite manuscript containing mainly <i>Patristic homilies</i>, whose parts were probably copied mostly in the 14th century. The authors who feature most prominently are John Chrysostom and Gregory of Nazianzus, but there are also individual texts by Anastasios of Sinai, Ephraem Syrus, Epiphanios of Constantia, Sophronios of Jerusalem and Gregory of Antioch. Some losses have been substituted by the insertion of replacement leaves.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Besides the main patristic body of the manuscript, a shorter portion has been added to the beginning of the manuscript containing a table giving the date of Easter for the years 1404/5-1491/2. This may have been produced for addition to this manuscript or reused from elsewhere. There are also a few folios reused as endleaves and drawn from liturgical manuscripts, bearing fragments of prayers and hymns.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>In the 16th or 17th century the manuscript was owned by the sakelliou of the Metropolitan of Rhodes, a priest or deacon responsible for the supervision of parish clergy. It was later owned by one Ioannes Borelius, perhaps the 17th-century Neapolitan scientist and mathematician Giovanni Alfonso Borelli, before being acquired later that century by the collector Thomas Gale.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
