Icons in the headpiece for John's Gospel in GA 780

  • GA 780: 11th century minuscule of the Gospels. This manuscript has particularly interesting and unique headpieces to begin each Gospel, which appear to have been added later. They each have three small icons of various figures ranging from the Gospel authors themselves to Jesus Christ, Peter, Paul, and even John Chrysostom. The feature image above from the beginning of the Gospel of John has (from left to right) John the Evangelist, Jesus Christ, and John the Baptist. This codex also contains a leaf from an uncatalogued manuscript with the text of Phil 2.7–11.

  • GA Lect 413: 14th century lectionary of the Gospels.
  • GA Lect 414: 14th century lectionary of the Gospels. This manuscript is a palimpsest. The upper-text is GA Lect 414, but the under-text is from various majuscule and minuscule manuscripts.
  • GA Lect 419: 16th century lectionary of the Gospels.
  • NLG 1910: 15th century lectionary. This manuscript was identified by CSNTM and it has not yet been officially catalogued or assigned a Gregory-Aland number.

Icon Headpieces

Headpiece icons in GA 772

  • GA 772: 14th century minuscule of the Gospels with commentary by Theophylact. Biblical text is indicated by double arrows in the margins. The Gospels of Mark, Luke, and John each have a beautiful headpiece containing an icon of the Evangelist (a collage of all three headpieces is pictured above).
