Product Description

"Dionysius the Areopagite," was the noted sixth-century Christian writer once thought to be Paul's first convert in Athens as mentioned in Acts 17. While his identity was later believed to be someone other than Paul's convert, the writings of "Pseudo-Dionysius" connected Christianity and Neoplatonism in highly controversial ways. New interest in his "apophatic" thought however, has renewed a sense of fascination with the writings of Pseudo-Dionysius (known as the Corpus Dionysiacum), especially when considering the field of mystical theology.
This volume, one of the first in English to survey the receptive history of Dionysian thought both in the East and West, provides a clear account of the debates about Pseudo-Dionysius' standing as both a philosopher and Christian theologian. Using a team of international scholars Re-Thinking Dionysius the Aeropagite will prove a critical aid to the study and understanding of Pseudo-Dionysian thought throughout the Christian tradition and up to the present day.
