Some Remarks on the Codex Ambrosianus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The manuscript (F) has a great importance for the study of the Greek Bible, because it contains in its margins Greek glosses (called Fb), as well as a lot of corrections towards the Masoretic text, apparently linked to the Jewish tradition of translations. The purpose of this paper is to examine some paleographical data concerning the codex and its history: its condition when it underwent a general restoration in the Middle Ages (eleventh–twel$h centuries); the principles this restoration was based on; some aspects of the “secondary text” of the second tabernacle account copied in fols. 52–55. The medieval work attests to the existence of a Greek Christian milieu where a great, and not so obvious, significance was ascribed to the Hebraica Veritas.
