on the Treatise of St. Dionysius
says of these letters by Dionysius, first bishop of Athens, to his
disciple Timothy: 'His whole book is written with a disguise,
as if it is a treatise on theology; mysticism is just somewhere by
the side, secondary, not primary. Hence the name Theologia Mystica,
as if mysticism is only a consequence of getting deep into the world
of theology. Just the reverse is the case.'
(Also available on audio).
Dionysius, little known except to specialists and obscure even to
them, is rediscovered and revivified in these amazing discourses.'
