I am looking for a definitive answer to whether or not Erasmus used Codex Basilensis 'A. N. III. 12 (07 on the list Gregory-Aland) — the four Gospels in Greek in uncial letters; 8th century' in his Novum Instrumentum omne?

    Which Codex Basilensis - there are at least seven documents ranging in date from the 8th to 15th century with this general title. – user43409 Jul 3 '19 at 3:17
  • Which Codex Basilensis? In that case, any of them. – InfinitelyManic Jul 3 '19 at 3:21

    The short answer is almost certainly yes. He used Codex Basilensis A. N. IV. 2 (1 on the list Gregory-Aland) — New Testament (except Apocalypse) in Greek in minuscule letters; 12th century; and Codex Basiliensis A. N. IV. 1 (2 on the list Gregory-Aland) — the four Gospels in Greek in minuscule letters; 11th/12th century; plus a few others – user43409 Jul 3 '19 at 3:53

    He [probably also used Codex Basilensis A. N. IV. 4 (2815 on the list Gregory-Aland) — Acts of the Apostles and Pauline epistles in Greek in minuscule letters; 12th century as well. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novum_Instrumentum_omne – user43409 Jul 3 '19 at 3:55
  • Perhaps the claims against him using it was with respect to Codex Basilensis A. N. III. 12 (07 on the list Gregory-Aland) — the four Gospels in Greek in uncial letters; 8th century; ? – InfinitelyManic Jul 3 '19 at 4:12
