Minuscule 933 (Gregory-Aland)

Minuscule 933 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 2004 (von Soden), is a 12th-century Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament on parchment. It has liturgical books, marginalia and was prepared for liturgical use. The manuscript has not survived in complete condition.



The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 292 parchment leaves (size 18.8 cm by 15.5 cm) with one lacuna in John 1:1-17. The text is written in one column per page, 20 lines per page. The leaves are arranged in octavo. It contains liturgical books with hagiographies (Synaxarion and Menologion). The texts of Matthew 17:4-18:1 and John 20:25-21:25 were supplied by a later hand.


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family K1. Kurt Aland did not place it in any Category. According to the Claremont Profile Method it belongs to the textual family Kx in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made.


The manuscript was dated by Gregory to the 12th century. Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 12th century. The codex 933 was seen by Gregory at the Dionysiou monastery (25), in Mount Athos. Currently the manuscript is housed at the Dionysiou monastery (157 (25)) in Athos.

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by C. R. Gregory (933e). It was not on Scrivener's list, but it was added to his list by Edward Miller in the 4th edition of A Plain Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament.

It is not cited in critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS4, NA28).
