The Works of Dionysius the Areopagite, vol. 1
James Parker & Co. 1897
Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite was an influential fifth- and sixth-century Christian author. Although the works falsely attributed to Dionysius in Acts 17:34 aren’t his doing, they’re still incredibly important in the history of Christian doctrine due to their influence on eastern and medieval Christianity and on the Christian contemplative tradition.
The first volume of The Works of Dionysius the Areopagite contains the English translations (from the original Greek) of those falsely attributed with introductions by the translator John Parker.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in the The Works of Dionysius the Areopagite are tagged and appear on mouse-over. This makes this resource more powerful and easier to access than ever before. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “divine” or “heavenly.”

Praise for the Print Edition
Dionysius was a profound and subtle thinker. His works mark the complete interfusion of ecclesiastical Christianity with Oriental mysticism. And his doctrine exerted a powerful influence upon the religious thought of England, from the twelfth century to the sixteenth.
