The Divine Names

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a selected translation of John of Scythopolis' Prologue to the Dionysian corpus by Dionysius the Areopagite concerning divine names. John provided a running commentary on the passages of the Dionysian corpus covering the issues of beyond being, superlative wisdom, the truth of the Scripture, and concern for salvation. The pagination and section divisions in this translation are based on the older edition of the Dionysian corpus published by Jacques Paul Migne.
