The Purple Codex

The Purple Codex (Codex Purpureus) of the Gospels, from Patmos and St. Petersburg

This is one of the oldest (6th century) surviving manuscripts in the Greek world of the text of the Gospels. It is written in capital letters on purple-tinted parchment, in silver ink with the holy names in gold. Apart from those in the monastery of Patmos, there are parts of the Codex in the library of St. Petersburg, and a few leaves in the Byzantine Museum in Athens, in the Vatican, and in other libraries. In this edition the whole Codex is gathered together in 279 pages.
