New Testament Uncials

This article contains a list of the surviving uncials of the New Testament. The list is in chronological order with the uncials which have been given the earliest dates at the top of the list and the uncials given the latest dates at the bottom of the list. They are listed by their number, then name, then date, then (if applicable) earliest provenance. The provenances of which I’m lesser sure about have (?) directly after them. This list currently only has the first 45 uncials listed.

1751 – Johann Jakob Wettstein knows of 23 New Testament uncial codices.

By 1859 – Constantin von Tischendorf knows of 64 uncials.

1909 – Caspar Rene Gregory enumerates 161 uncials.

By 1963 – Kurt Aland enumerates 250 uncials in his Kurzgefasste Liste. In 1989, he enumerates 299.
