Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses one specific question, namely that of the scholia that appear in the Doctrina Patrum. The author's observations on these scholia arose as one of many problems that emerged in the course of comparing the Georgian translation with the Greek original. This Greek florilegium has survived in five main manuscripts. The origins of the scholia bear emphasizing, because this Greek florilegium also contains many extensive scholia which present important theological-philosophical, philological, and textual comments. In the Doctrina Patrum the author of the scholia is not mentioned in the Greek manuscripts. The study of aspects of the scholia of the Doctrina Patrum, in connection with other problems, enables the author to draw conclusions via the data of the Old Georgian translation such that it becomes possible for him to fill in lacunae in knowledge of the history of the Greek text of the work.

Keywords: Doctrina Patrum; Georgian translation; Greek florilegium; scholia
