Chapter Summary

The first printed edition of the Panoplia Dogmatike was not only the fruit of antiquarian interest but was deeply related to current affairs of the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth century. In the Early Modern period the tradition of the heresiological genre to ascribe to new movements the names of older heresies had been preserved. The purpose of the edition of the Panoplia becomes clear from the writings of the Orthodox theologians of the seventeenth century, who quoted and interpreted the anthology. Moreover when the Panoplia was printed it was part of an editorial program which included the publication of other monumental Byzantine works like the treatise Against Heresies by Symeon of Thessalonica and the edition of John Damascene's Treasury of the Orthodox Faith. Before examining these details of the publication, it is necessary to present briefly several historical events which were at the background of the publication.

Keywords: early modern period; monumental Byzantine works; orthodox theologians; Panoplia Dogmatike
