Chapter Summary

Having examined various aspects of the Greek editio princeps of the Panoplia Dogmatike, what remains is to assess the impact of the publication. The edition came from the Orthodox leaders, and highly educated theologians of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. However, the whole story about the book in Wallachia and Moldavia might leave the reader with the erroneous impression that the Romanian Principalities were inhabited by Greek Orthodox theologians who were supported by the pious local voevods, which was not the real situation in the Principalities. However it shows that the edition of the Panoplia was carried out by the highest Orthodox elite and had limited impact. The first reference to the Greek editio princeps is attested around three years after the publication; this is before 1714. It is narrated by Johann Albert Fabricius (1668-1736) and this account can be accepted as trustworthy.
