Corbey Manuscript (Codex Corbeiensis, so called from the abbey of Corbie or Corbey, in Picardy [see below], which once contained it), the name of a very ancient MS., or, rather, of two partially confused codices of the Gospels in the Old Latin version.
1. A MS. from which Martianay edited Matthew (in his Vulgata Antiqua Latina, etc., Par. 1695), and which is repeated by Blanchini (in his Evangelarium Quadruplex). Sabatier gives its various readings, but seems to confound it with the following.
2. A MS. defective in the first eleven chapters of Matthew. Its readings are cited in the three other Gospels by Blanchini, and throughout by Sabatier.
These texts (which are designated respectively as ff1 and ff2 of the Gospels) are mixed; they occasionally preserve good readings, but there is much officious revision (see Scrivener, Introd. to N.T. p. 257). SEE MANUSCRIPTS, BIBLICAL.
