There are few figures in the history of Western Spirituality who are more enigmatic than the fifth or sixth-century writer known as Pseudo-Dionysius. The real identity of the person who chose to write under the pseudonym of Dionysius the Areopagite is unknown. Despite the mystery surrounding Pseudo-Dionysius, the influence of this shadowy figure on broad range of mystical writers from the early middle ages on is readily discernible. Until now, relatively few attempts have been made to translate the entire corpus of his writing into English. Here in one volume are collected all of the Pseudo-Dionysius' works.
