The aim of this article is to review the known information concerning the history of the Vaticanus Arabicus 13, a manuscript from the ninth century that is at the core of much of the actual research regarding the early Arabic versions of the New Testament. This work summarizes the current state of research and addresses the material and scribal characteristics of the codex, while providing several essential clarifications and new insights. This article concludes with a short excursus about the abrupt end of Mark within the manuscript.
