Product Description

During one of his missionary journeys St. Paul delivered a message of the One, Unknown God (Acts 17:22) in the city center of Athens, Areopagus. Present among the Athenians that day was a certain Denys, or Dionysios, who later became a disciple of Paul. Centuries later, when a corpus of writings appeared bearing the name of the "Denys the Areopagite," these texts were considered to be the very writings of the same first century disciple of the Apostle Paul. As a result these works achieved immediate prominence, and had profound influence upon the lives of St. Maximus the Confessor and St. John Damascene in the East, as well as St. Bede, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. John of the Cross, and a many other great minds in the West.
While later historical studies of Denys' texts showed conclusively that these writings are of a later date however, the extraordinary brilliance of the texts themselves has been in no way dimmed. Divine Light is a focused exposition of Denys' theological understanding with particular attention to the illuminating metaphysical depth of his insight. Care has been taken to prepare a text that is readable for the serious laymen while accompanied with footnotes to provide a more detailed background for the academic scholar.
