History of the codex

This codex was chiefly used by Desiderius Erasmus as a basis for his first edition of the Novum Testamentum (1516). It was only one manuscript of the Book of Revelation used by Erasmus. In result its readings became a basis for the Textus Receptus.Erasmus borrowed the manuscript from Reuchlin, but it was lost for many years until rediscovered in 1861 by F. Delitzsch.
