The importance of the Aereopagita>/i> is in inverse relation to what we actually know of the author -- a sixth-century Syrian monk seems to be the best guess. What is not open to question is the immense role this amazingly brief (and amazingly dense) body of work has played in the development of medieval Western and Eastern theology. This volume contains it all -- The Divine Names, The Mystical Theology, The Celestial Hierarchy, The Ecclesiastical Hierarchy, and The Letters. Preface by Rene Roques, introductions by Jaroslav Pelikan, Jean Leclercq, and Karl Froehlich. 312 pp.
An Eighth Day View:
Here are the complete works of the enigmatic fifth- and sixth-century writer known as the Pseudo Dionysius, prepared by a team of six research scholars.
