Query about Catholic teachings as reflected in Byzantine/Slavic polemics

In the Russian Primary Chronicle, the Catholics who come to convince Vladimir of Kiev to adopt Catholic Christianity present their (main) 'teaching' as "Whatever one eats or drinks, it is for the glory of God". This, obviously, resonates 1 Corinthians 10:31, but I wonder if any other medieval texts uses this specific 'commandment', especially in Latin/Byzantine polemics. Thank you!
