Argues that Theodore quoted from memory and did not have a fixed Arabic translation at his disposal. The quotations betray Syriac influence. Contrary to his Arabic writings, in his Greek works Theodore sticks to the wording of the Biblical texts. He does not view the text of the Bible as revealed Scripture in the Qurʾānic sense. The quotations do not exclude that Theodore might have authored the “Summa theologiae arabica” (MS London, British Library, Or. 4950).
