THE MYSTICAL THEOLOGY and THE CELESTIAL HIERARCHIES
These two treatises attributed to Dionysius the Areopagite hold an undisputed place among the mystical writings of all time. The Mystical Theology describes the ascent of the human soul to God culminating in the silence of the Divine Darkness. The Celestial Hierarchies describes the Angelic choirs which, through the threefold process of purgation, illumination and perfective-union, assist the soul in making its ascent to God. Both works were revised in 2004 with a new introduction and appendices, including the first English translation of Mystical Theology by the author of The Cloud of Unknowing, and the Latin texts upon which it was based.

THE DIVINE NAMES by Dionysius the Areopagite
The writings attributed to Dionysius the Areopagite became the form and type of mystical religion within the Church early in its history, and inspired generations of mystics and poets. In The Divine Names the author expresses many profound truths concerning the Divine Names, unfolding a mystical understanding of the names of God in the Bible through Neoplatonic insights.
