Minuscule 215 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), A134 (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 a complete text of the four Gospels, on 272 parchment leaves (size 33 cm by 23.5 cm), with a commentary.[1] Written in one column per page, 24 lines per page (biblical text).[2] It contains Epistula ad Carpianum, the Eusebian tables, tables of κεφαλαια, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, Ammonian Sections (Mark 237), Eusebian Canons, lectionary markings, synaxaria, and pictures (later hand).[2] The commentary to Matthew is an authorship of Chrysostomos, Mark - Victorinus of Pettau, Luke - Titus of Bostra, John - Chrysostomos.[2] It has the famous Jerusalem Colophon ("from the ancient manuscripts of Jerusalem").[3] The manuscript is a duplicate of the codex 20 and 300, as well in its text as in the subscriptions and commentary, being without any later corrections seen in codex 20.[3]


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