Chapter Summary

The immediate reason for the publication of the Greek edition princes was related to the major theological discussions among the Orthodox during the seventeenth century over the words used to define the Eucharist and as a reaction of the Orthodox to the controversies in the West over Christ's Real Presence in the Eucharist, in particular the transubstantiation. According to Dositheos II, Karyophylles had rejected the reality of the change in the Eucharistic elements several times throughout his life by writing short treatises. From the documents ratified by the Synod it becomes clear that the people who accused Karyophylles of Calvinising views were the same who supported the edition of the Panoplia Dogmatike. In reality, the Panoplia supports Karyophylles because the Church Fathers quoted in the Panoplia nowhere use the term metousiosis. Moreover, the quotation from John Damascene, which Karyophylles used as an argument, is present in the Panoplia itself.
