Dionysius is a scholarly journal published by the Department of Classics at Dalhousie University. It was established originally in 1977, and a new series began in 1998. It publishes articles on the history of ancient philosophy and theology, and has a special interest in the Aristotelian and Neoplatonic traditions. It also publishes more general articles relating to literature, history, and religion.
A number of distinguished scholars were among the original editorial advisors, and many of them made contributions in due course to the journal.[according to whom?] Examples include Werner Beierwaltes' Negati Affirmatio or The World as Metaphor: A Foundation for Medieval Aesthetics from the Writings of John Scotus Eriugena and his Cusanus and Eriugena; Mary T. Clark's Augustine's Theology of the Trinity: Its Relevance; J.N. Findlay's The Myths of Plato; Hans-Georg Gadamer's Plato's "Parmenides" and Its Influence; and George Grant's Nietzsche and the Ancients: Philosophy and Scholarship.[original research?]
