It has been dated to the 4th century, and with its beautifully produced leaves of vellum, it includes both the Old and the New Testament. Written in Greek , this codex takes its name after the Vatican Library where it has been conserved since the 15th century. Several scholars took part to the collation of this exquisite codex, causing several errors in the process. Both Testaments had or still have missing leaves , in both some were restored by a later hand in the 15th century; and those supplemented in the New Testament fols.
Originally, the codex was probably composed of leaves divided in sheets of the Old Testament and the New Testament of sheets. Furthermore, two correctors could have worked on the codex: one contemporary with the scribes, and the other at a later time , possibly in the 10th or 11th century. Unfortunately, this view is speculative and has been rejected by other scholars.
Glosses , corrections , and additions to the text seems to suggest a regular use of the Codex Vaticanus B , unfortunately it is difficult to date and locate these interventions. The scribe who retouched the text shows extraordinary ability , this would either indicate a tremendous mimetic skill or that perhaps he worked in an era not too far from the original.
Unfortunately, one can only speculate. The cursive writing later added to the text can be dated to the second half of the 12th century. Other additional features are the colorful banners and initials that mark the beginning of each book, these motifs seem to echo 10th century decoration typical of Constantinople , but their execution is clumsy and bastardized which would point to the 11th or 12th century.
Still unknown is the identity of the patron and commissioner. It is however conceivable that the Codex Vaticanus B was kept in Caesarea in the 6th century, along with the Codex Sinaiticus as both codices are mutually consistent in the division of chapters in the Acts.
Since it came to Italy — probably after the Council of Florence — it has been preserved in the Vatican Library founded by Pope Nicholas V in Rome: Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato , Vellum and leather binding with gold and silver blockings on the spine.
The facsimile edition and its companion volume come in a refined plexiglass case and are accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate.

Codex vaticanus (B) fac simile
The manuscript became known to Western scholars as a result of correspondence between Erasmus and the prefects of the Vatican Library. Portions of the codex were collated by several scholars, but numerous errors were made during this process. The codex's relationship to the Latin Vulgate was unclear and scholars were initially unaware of its value. Most current scholars consider the Codex Vaticanus to be one of the best Greek texts of the New Testament ,  with the Codex Sinaiticus as its only competitor.
