Descrizione prodotto


Pseudo-Dionysius was long believed to have been St. Paul's Athenian convert, Dionysius the Areopagite, mentioned in Acts 17:43. However, the presence, in the writings attributed to him, of concepts and categories derived from the 5th century Neoplatonic philosopher Proclus gradually led to a re-evaluation of this mysterious writer's identity, and so he became known as Pseudo-Dionysius. We can say nothing certain about his life or identity, for we only know his works. These are: The Mystical Theology, The Divine Names, The Celestial Hierarchy, The Ecclesiastical Hierarchy, and ten epistles. In these treatises Pseudo-Dionysius develops his apophatic or negative theology, which was to have an immense influence on Christian mysticism in the East and West.

5.0 su 5 stelle Archaic translation, best available 5 giugno 2012
Di Alexei Fyodorovich - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
This tranlation is quite literal, very old fashioned, and essential for comparison with the newer Paulist Fathers version by Rorem and Luibheid. In the matter of old school vs. new school I confess to traditionalist leanings. But anyone who wants to know what the author intended needs to come to his or her own conclusions. It is best to learn Greek; second best to have two good translations of opposite tendencies to compare. Parker's (this version) is my favorite, and that of some other seasoned scholars, like Eric Perle.
State of the art in the 1890's is worthy to be compared to the state of the art of a century later. To those who find it difficult, I'd add: Not everyone is supposed to read this book; when I first read it, I was not ready for it. Twenty years later I was. If you care about authentic Christian mysticism, this is the founding classic -- whoever wrote it whenever. If you are not ready, you will be bored, perhaps feel contempt, or get a headache. When you are ready, if you must read it in English, this version and Luibheid's need to be used in tandem. For interpretations, I like Fr. Alexander Golitzin's best, though there are many others.
