List of Lost Codices

-----------------------------

This page is derived from Table II from Corpus Christianorum Latinorum I. The codices which only contain the Apologeticum are listed elsewhere.

Lost codices are listed in red. However a lost codex is only listed if someone used it for an extant edition. The century in which the codex was written is noted, if known.

The table also contains the De trinitate of Novatian and the Adversus omnes haereses, a spurious work, as these are found in certain of the collections of Tertullian's works, and therefore their presence or absence is indicative of the history of that particular manuscript.

Symbols used
+ = the text of this book is in the manuscript
f = fragments of this book from this manuscript are known to us.
lect. = readings from this lost manuscript are known to us from marginal notes or collations in later editions..
(+) = These works were printed by Beatus Rhenanus in his first edition using only the now lost Codex Hirsaugensis, and so are effectively a copy of that work for those works. He derived the other works in his edition from the Codex Paterniacensis,

(From CTC 1986, 11, reviewing Duval, Yves-Marie, Sur la bibliographie et les manuscrits d'Arnobe de Sicca : les informations de Jerome, leur sens et leurs sources possibles, Latomus 45 (1986), pp.79-99.  P.91, n.81 refers to some MSS extant in Paris in 1652, following Oehler.  The catalogue includes among other rarities, "Tertulliani de pallio, aduersus gentes de spectaculis, de baptismo" (Ph. Labbe, Noua Bibliotheca Mss. librorum, Paris, apud I.Henault, 1653, p.372).
