Manuscript Summary
Codex Delta: the Gospels in Greek with interlinear translation into Latin, written by Irish monks, probably in the Cloister of Bobbio (northeast of Genoa) about 850. Among the most important ancient Greek biblical texts that have been preserved. Colorfully detailed initial capitals make this item important to the study of manuscript decoration. The catalog of a cycle of Greek Gospel illustrations with 42 titles is found on page 129. The sole (fragmentary) known Carmen of the Gospel (Carmen de evangelio) by Pseudo-Hilarius is also bound into this manuscript. Two sister-manuscripts of this Codex Delta are held by the University of Basel Library (the Greek-Latin Psalter, A VII 3) and in the State Library of Saxony at Dresden (Letters of Paul in Greek and Latin).
