- Walters Ms. W.520, Gospel Lectionary
- Greek, Ancient (t0 1453)
- This is an example of a Gospel Lectionary written in the archaic, majuscule form of Greek letters. Liturgical books were inherently conservative and therefore commonly retained such antiquated writing. The scribe, a certain monk Theodore, has recorded his name in a verse at the end of the volume (fol. 179v). A leaf removed from this manuscript ca. 1900 is now in Sofia, National Library of Republic of Bulgaria NBKM Gr. 2.
