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.
