The Mystical Theology
Publisher: Shrine of Wisdom, 1949
These two writings of Dionysius were first published separately, but since have been placed in a single edition.
Mystic Theologies has had far-reaching influence, but it is comparatively little known. There were few English versions available when this edition was published.
Its five chapters deal with such topics as the necessity to be united and to praise God, the affirmations and negations concerning God, and the Cause of all things not being any of them.
The Celestial Hierarchies is based on passages from the Old and New Testaments, yet embodies the essential principles of the Neoplatonic teachings.
Its fifteen chapters deal with such topics as Divine and Celestial Matters, Angel Hierarchies, and Angelic Powers.
