Lectionary 150, or "l"150 in the Gregory-Aland numbering, is also known as Codex Harleianus. It is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on vellum leaves. [K. Aland, M. Welte, B. Köster, K. Junack, "Kurzgefasste Liste der griechischen Handschriften des Neues Testaments", (Berlin, New York: Walter de Gruyter, 1994), p. 48. ] It is written in compressed Greek Uncial letters, on 374 leaves, 2 columns per page, with ornaments. Capital letters and nomina sacra are in red ink. The codex includes ten leaves of paper containing a series of Lessons from the Gospels.


The codex contains Lessons from the four Gospels lectionary ("Evangelistarium"). The image shows the text of John 1:18.

It is one of the most beautiful lectionary codices, with a scribal date of 27 May 995 A.D. "It is a most splendid specimen on the uncial class of Evangelistaria, and its text presents many instructive variations."
F.H. A. Scrivener, "A plain Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament", (Cambridge, 1894), p. 218. ] According to the colophon it was written by a presbyter called Constantine.
