This book consists of a series of studies of Codex Zacynthius (Cambridge, University Library MS Add. 10062), the earliest surviving New Testament commentary manuscript in catena format. A research project funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council has produced new multispectral images of the palimpsest undertext in order to enable a thorough investigation of the manuscript and the creation of a complete electronic edition. This volume, co-authored by the members of the project, will provide a full account of the research undertaken by the project. Many advances have resulted from this research, which will be presented here for the first time in print.

Codex Zacynthius (Cambridge, University Library MS Add. 10062) is one of the most intriguing manuscripts of the Greek New Testament. Beneath the pages of a gospel lectionary copied around the end of the twelfth century are the remains of a much earlier commentary on the Gospel according to Luke. This appears to be the oldest surviving New Testament catena manuscript, with extracts from a variety of early Christian writers arranged in a frame around the biblical text. By creating new state-of-the-art multispectral images, a research project funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council has produced a complete transcription of both the undertext and overtext of the manuscript for the first time. This research has led to new discoveries about the manuscript and its history, which are presented here along with extensive information about the contents and structure of the catena and the lectionary. The studies in this volume complement the digital edition of the manuscript in the Cambridge Digital Library and the printed edition and translation of the catena also published in the Texts and Studies series.
