Corpus Cyrillo-Methodianum Helsingiense

Codex Marianus


The text should be considered to be a tertiary source as it is not based on the manuscript itself, but on Vatroslav Jagić's edition thereof. The file is not meant to be completely self-explanatory: it must be used with the edition.

The lines in the files do not correspond to the manuscript lines, being arranged according to Gospel chapters and verses. Each line begins with a seven-digit number which is to be interpreted as follows:

In the beginning of each Gospel (except for Matthew, the beginning of which is missing in the codex) there is a "00-chapter, 00-verse" section into which the pericope lists found in the codex are placed. In these passages the line division does correspond to that of the codex.

The transliteration used in the text only makes use of the 7-bit ASCII code so as to ensure maximal portability. Upper-case letters are used to represent different graphemes than the corresponding lower-case letters (see the table below).

There is also an XML version of the text file.
