- This word (from the Latin cum, meaning "with," and substantia, meaning "substance") is used inLutheran theology to indicate that the body and blood of Christ are present with the Eucharistic elements of bread and wine; in contrast, the Roman Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation teaches that at the Eucharist the bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ.
