Doctrine of Transubstantiation - Eleventh century dogma of the Catholic Church; proclaiming that in Holy Communion, the bread and wine of the host are transmogrified into the body and blood of Christ; doctrinal basis for the validity of what is obviously a placebo sacrament. Hence: Transubstantial, Transubstantiate, Transubstantiating.1959 Wasson Trans. New York Acad. Sci., 21: 333. The faithful were not obliged to accept the dogma of Transubstantiation in order to know that they had partaken of the body of Christ.
