The writing that claims to be a letter addressed by Dionysius the Areopagite to the Timothy of the New Testament on the occasion of the martyrdom of the apostles Peter and Paul in Rome is not included among the epistles usually associated with other works that bear the name of the same person as author, and its history must be investigated independently of theirs. It was composed originally in Greek, although it no longer exists in that language. To the material for the critical study of this epistle the author now adds an unprinted Arabic translation that appears not only to have been made directly from the lost original Greek, but also to show that an Arabic form lies back of the other versions. The document is reproduced with literal exactness.

The Work of Dionysius Barsalībi Against the Armenians

Woodbrooke Studies 4
ISBN: 978-1-59333-829-9
The Work of Dionysius Barsalībi Against the Armenians represents the nature of some disputes in the Christianity of the Middle Ages. Dionysius Barsalībi (d. 1171) in a very rare manuscript, begins by giving a brief sketch of the political and religious history of the Armenians. Dionysius argues that Christ’s body was corruptible up until the time of his death, and only after that did it become incorruptible. This underscores the fact that Christ had a true human body and that he digested food just like other people. The implications for this interpretation in connection with the Eucharist are obviously essential aspects to be resolved in this controversy.
