 Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite
Dionysius' fictitious identity, doubted already in the sixth century by Hypatius of Ephesus and later by Nicholas of Cusa, was first seriously called into question by Lorenzo Valla in 1457 and John Grocyn in 1501, a critical viewpoint later accepted and publicized by Erasmus from 1504 onward.
Dionysius himself provides an explanatory outline that favors the order of Luibheid and Rorem, and that gives a systematic organization to his body of work, including both the treatises we presently possess and also the treatises which either no longer exist or, more likely, were never written.
Dionysius adopts the word theurgy, “god–work”, together with theology, “god–word”, to describe the inmost reality of this practice, adopting it from the later Neoplatonist understanding of a hidden sympathy or interconnectedness between material things and the sacred, divine significances resident in them by virtue of divine power.

Dionysius is the only surviving writer of his generation (or, indeed, of the first centuries BC or AD) to cite certain of these authors, whose works are to us otherwise known only from references in scholia, lexica, and similar compilations.
Dionysius has presented himself in the preface as one who engages fairly with his predecessors but is capable both of assessment and of justified criticism; further self-definition occurs both implicitly and explicitly later.

 [No title]
Dionysius frequently notes that the fact that God truly became man is not in any way a diminution of God's utter mysteriousness and transcendence of all things (EH 1, 372AB; EH 3, 440B, 444A, 484A; DN 1, 592B; DN 2, 648C).
Dionysius is much less interested than later medieval theologians in the West in what happens to the elements and much more interested in the sacred activity of God symbolically disclosed in the ecclesial performance of the rite.
The clear Neoplatonic leaning leads Rorem to suspect "that for Dionysius the crucial factor in the sacrament was the conceptual interpretation of the rite, not a bodily communion with Christ's body and blood" (115).

Many of Dionysius’ writings, however, are so vast and their transmission so complex that they have defied scholarly attempts to produce critical editions and studies.
Ryan argues that the original layout of Dionysius’ commentaries was in synoptic columns, a layout preserved in two early manuscripts (Z = Mardin Orthodox 67, between the 12th and the 14th centuries, and R = Mardin Orthodox 66, probably 1189 AD).
Dionysius himself explicitly mentions “the work of Andrew, the priest of Jerusalem”, which he used in his mixed commentary of Pss.

Dionysius, disposed more to affectionate persuasion than force, started taking long walks with Ampelos, often swimming together in a forest pond, where their love was first consummated, hunting, throwing the thrysus, and especially — wrestling.
Dionysius was in heaven amid this honeysweet grappling, and love gave him a double joy, lifting and being lifted.
Dionysius and his companion Ampelos were represented, sometimes in effigy, but more often by two comely young men, naked and in drunken sexual horseplay on a couch set out on a hillside with bonfires and pitch torches illuminating the scene.
