Chapter Summary

The episode in the history of the Greek editio princeps of the Panoplia Dogmatike that happened in Russia confirms that this edition was an endeavor of the patriarchs of Jerusalem, even though their names are not directly mentioned in any part of the printed text from the year 1710. This chapter focuses on details of the attempt to print the Panoplia. In order to do so, the viewpoint of the investigation moves from the Romanian Principalities to the Russian Empire, especially in the context of Patriarch Nikon's reforms and the changes under Peter the Great. The list of the manuscripts to be printed provides the authentic background against which the edition of the Panoplia should be viewed. The comprehensiveness of the list shows that Patriarch Dositheos intended to create a modern collection of books based on principles similar to the polemic anthologies of the Byzantine tradition.

Keywords: Byzantine tradition; Greek editio princeps; Panoplia Dogmatike; Romanian principalities; Russia
