Chapter Summary

The Greek Panoplia Dogmatike by itself is taking pride in the fact that it has remained buried "as gold" and is printed for the first time in Tîrgovişte. The emphasis on the fact that the Panoplia was printed on Orthodox soil had value in the eyes of the people behind the Greek edition. For them, it was a book uncontaminated by the heterodox but the reality was different because texts from the Panoplia were included in the Catholic-Protestant controversies. Arguments from these controversies were later integrated in the Orthodox theology and in this way the Latin translation of the Panoplia, made in 1555, was indirectly connected with the Greek edition. For the third part About the Transformation of the Lord's Body and Blood the sources provide evidence that the Panoplia of Alexios I Komnenos and his theologians was used as an argument for the Eucharistic debates and transubstantiation.

Keywords: Alexios I Komnenos; orthodox theology; Panoplia Dogmatike; Tîrgovişte edition
