Item Description...
The writings ascribed to the Athenian convert of St. Paul, Denys (or Dionysius) the Areopagite, made their first appearance the early sixth century. Since then, through the Renaissance and beyond, they have exercised an enormous influence on Christian thought, both in the East and in the West. Yet who their author was remains in soluble mystery. This book explores Denys' theology, which draws both on the great Greek theologians of the fourth century - the Cappadocian Fathers - and on the stridently pagan philosophical tradition of late Athenian Neoplationism, as well as showing affinities with the Christian thought of Syria. In this comprehensive introduction, Andrew Louth explores Denys' theology, presenting a compelling vision of the beauty of God's revelation, joined with a profound awareness of the ultimate mystery of the unknowable God.

Publishers Description
The corpus of Denys the Areopagite appeared in the 6th century and has since been deeply influential on Christian thinking both in East and West, although the real identity of the author remains a mystery. In this volume Andrew Louth examines all the traditions on which Denys' work draws: the 4th century Greek theologians, pagan philosophy and Syrian Christian thought. He also documents and comments on Denys' compelling vision of the beauty of God's world and his revelation, together with his profound awareness of the ultimate mystery of the unknowable God who utterly transcends all being.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of the greatest Christian mystics  Apr 1, 2000
Louth's introduction to Denys is outstanding. It provides helpful insights into the thought of a Christian mystical theologian whose insights played a large role in the formation of the traditional Western Roman liturgy and whose insights are still foundational to Eastern Orthodox conceptions of liturgy and theology. It is a shame that it is out of print. See Denys' complete works: "The Complete Works of Pseudo-Dionysius" published by Paulist Press.
