I read this at seminary, probably for Smiths Philosophic Method course during the first semeter. Id taken a course on religious mysticism in college, read a lot of Eastern mystical philosophy and some Plato on my own, so Pseudo-Dionysius wasnt inaccessible. Indeed, his work and Christian works like it, such as The Cloud of Unknowing, made a lot of sense--more sense, certainly, than bibliolatrous Christianity did.

Indeed, the weakest part of these two texts, the part that popped the bubble of mystic exaltation as it were, was when the author protested that his arguments were biblically based. One wonders if he, or later redactors, added such patently specious remarks in order to protect the teachings from charges of heresy and their manuscripts from the fire.
