Minuscule 194 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), A130 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 11th century.[1]



The codex contains almost complete text of the four Gospels, with a commentary, on 263 thick parchment leaves (size 30.1 cm by 24.6 cm).[1] Written in one column per page, biblical text in 25 lines per page, and commentary's text in 46 lines per page.[1] The biblical text is surrounded by a catena (Victor's on St. Mark). Text of Matthew begins in 3:7.[2] Catena is similar to that of 34.[2]

It contains numbers of the κεφαλαια, Ammonian Sections (not Eusebian Canons), subscription, στιχοι, pictures.[2] The biblical text is surrounded by a catena (Victor's on St. Mark).


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4]

It lacks the text of Matthew 16:2b–3.


It was examined by Birch, Scholz, and Burgon.[2]

It is currently housed at the Laurentian Library (Plutei. VI. 33), at Florence.[1]
