This chapter presents a selected translation of John of Scythopolis' Prologue to the Dionysian corpus by Dionysius the Areopagite concerning mystical theology. John provided a running commentary on the passages of the Dionysian corpus covering the issues of sightless mind, ray of divine shadow, divine and good nature, and hypothetical affirmation. The number of the pages and sections in this translation are based on Jacques Paul Migne's version of the Dionysian corpus.
