Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite is an important and influential Christian author who wrote in the 5th or 6th century. Even though it is now recognized that the attribution of these works to the Dionysius mentioned in Acts 17:34 is false, they're still incredibly important for the history of Christian doctrine due to their influence on Eastern and Medieval Christianity and the Christian contemplative tradition.

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.
