Dionysius the Areopagite On the divine names and The mystical theology

Author: Pseudo-Dionysius, the Areopagite; C E Rolt
Publisher: New York : Cosimo Classics, [2007]
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Pseudo-Dionysius deals here with the supra-personality of God. Personality, by definition, is a quality limited to an individual. God, on the other hand, is the opposite of an individual. God is in all things, so one cannot speak of a personality for the divine. Rather, Pseudo-Dionysius proposes a supra-personality, which describes aspects and qualities of the universal being.--
