This article is about Dionysius the Areopagite, the character in the book of Acts. Putting detailed descriptions here of the mystical writings incorrectly attributed to him will only confuse people. Please put any material about the writings in the article: Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. --Blainster 21:51, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
I can't find any credible sources that substantiate the claim that Dionysius is, in fact, a patron saint "against demons," but it is definitely true that Hellboy claims that he is. Perhaps another confusion with Saint Denis, the patron saint of France? I'll be here all week. Hansonfan (talk) 23:24, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Contradiction with Other Wiki Page
On the D. Bishop of Corinth page, it is reported that "Dionysius spoke of the recent martyrdom of their bishop, Publius (in the persecution of Marcus Aurelius), and says that Dionysius the Areopagite was the first Bishop of Athens." First, there. Second here (as well as the Wiki list of Bishops).
Confusing finishing paragraphs
The whole story of the eclipse confuses the reader -- what is the purpose of adding it to the article. What difference does it make if the author of the article, or notoriously anti-Christian Valla, or a German person writing his introduction deem Dionysius' letter credible or not? The letter is actually stating that the eclipse was indeed happening out of its time. In lack of argument it might suffice to say that the letter's credibility is sometimes contested, might it not? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:28, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
