Summary/Abstract: The papers forming the Oxford Handbook of Dionysius the Areopagite were delivered at a conference on the Corpus Dionysiacum, organized by Dimitrios Pallis, the volume being intended as a comprehensive collection of studies on sources, origin, and the reception of the Corpus. The compendium represents the actual stage achieved in this art of deepening the research about Dionysius, a very useful tool in grasping on how is seen Dionysius and his legacy today. So, it is not just for specialists but also for the public at large, for anyone wishing to have a better understanding of how Dionysian writings got to have such a tremendous impact on the history of European mind and ethos in its multifaced identities, Western vs. Eastern, Older vs. Modern This is excellent as well for the comprehension of causes underlying the persistence of cultural and spiritual boundaries in the European ethos.
