Codex Hierosolymitanus (1056 CE)

This manuscript, usually designated H, was discovered in 1873 by Philotheos Bryennios, the Metropolitan of Nicomedia, in the library of the Jerusalem Monastery of the Holy Sepulchre at Constantinople. It was written by a scribe, Leo, in 1056. A photographic facsimile was published by J. Rendel Harris in 1887. The manuscript contains the Didache, the Epistle of Barnabas, I Clement, II Clement, and the long form of the Ignatian letters.
