TitleGreek Manuscripts
DescriptionGreek manuscripts collected during his visits to the East by Joseph Dacre Carlyle (1759-1804), Professor of Arabic, Cambridge,and chaplain to the embassy in Constantinople (1799), some of which were returned to their rightful owner, the patriarch of Jerusalem, shortly after their acquisition from Carlyle's executors by Archbishop Manners-Sutton (see Custodial History).
Acquired by Carlyle and his friend Dr Philip Hunt for Lambeth Palace Library during their mission in the East between 1800-1801, these MSS were brought to England with the intention to be collated for the preparation of a critical edition of the Greek New Testament. For further information, see 'The Greek Manuscript Collection of Lambeth Palace Library: An Exhibition held on the occasion of the 21st International Byzantine Congress, London, 22-23 August 2006' (printed for Lambeth Palace Library by The Cromwell Press, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, 2006).
