Joost Van Rossum: Revisiting the Problem of the Relationship between Pseudo-Dionysius and Maximus the Confessor

John Meyendorff has noticed an implicit “Christological corrective” made by Maximus with regard to the writings ascribed to St Dionysius the Areopagite. Andrew Louth, in a paper presented at the Oxford Patristics Conference in 1991 (“St Denys the Areopagite and St Maximus the Confessor”, SP XXVII, Leuven, 1993) has rightly pointed out that these remarks of Meyendorff “have not been worked out at length in a substantial way”.

In comparing certain passages in the Ecclesiastical Hierarchy and the Mystagogy, this communication will make a small contribution to the discussion.
