Codex Sang. 1394

5th and 7th century CE


Elisa Nury



Cod. Sang. 1394 (or VL 16) is a volume of collected fragments also known as fragmenta sangallensia, which contains several parts from the Gospels from the Vetus Latina. Mark 16 with the longer ending is present in two fragments: Codex n and Codex o. Codex n is made of 14 leaves, pages 51-88, dated from the fifth century CE. Mark 16:1-14 appears on pages 87-88, a single folio at the end of Codex n. It should be noted that the folio may have been bound in the wrong order, since page 87 contains chapters 16:5bcd to 16:14, and page 88 has the preceding chapters 15:41d to 16:5a. The Vth century last folio, with Mk 16:15-20, has been apparently lost, then replaced by a the VIIth century folio (Codex o).
