Ashgate studies in philosophy & theology in late antiquity


Wear (Franciscan U. of Steubenville) and Dillon (Greek, Trinity College, Dublin) examine the philosophy of Dionysius the Areopagite, influenced by but clearly departed from Hellenic Platonists in his use of an ecclesiastical cosmos rather than the Platonic Timaean, among other distinctions. This book studies his writings Divine Names, The Mystical Theology and others as they integrate Hellenic Tradition with Christian thought.
