Abstract

In this paper, I am trying to analyze and interpret key passages of The Divine Names which concern Denys’ theory of intitiation into the Christian mysteries. This analysis shows that Denys put forward Christian dogma as articulated in Neo-Platonic ontological terms; and that he understood initiation essentially as an advancing into the infinity of God.
