Philosophical and Theological Questions in Late Byzantium

George Pachymere's Paraphrasis of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite's De Divinis Nominibus

George Pachymeres (1242-c.1310) is considered one of the most significant representatives of the Palaeolagan Renaissance in literature and arts, which provided a new style to the spiritual paths. His entire work radiates Aristotelian thought. Pachymeres presents the whole of the Dionysian corpus with a fascination for its internal formation encyclopedism. However, his main contribution lies in the fact that he established the philosophical and theological requirements for a scientific and rational understanding of the sensible world as a renewed theophany, which is clearly compatible with the principles of the Christian faith. This study focuses on George Pachymeres's Paraphrasis of Pseudo-Dionysius' De divinis nominibus, explicitly investigating the fourth chapter of the treatise, which according to Pseudo-Dionysius is entitled "On the Good, on the Light, on the Beauty, on the Eros, on the Ecstasy, on the Zeal, and on the fact that evil is not a being."
