Searching for St Dionysios the Areopagite

Bishop Alexander shares how he came to an understanding of the theology of St Dionysios, over against established academic opinion, through immersion in the liturgical life of Mt Athos. This lecture highlights that which I have long believed: the necessity of the liturgical and eucharistic tradition for the right understanding of Holy Scripture and the writings of the Church Fathers. This is not to dismiss what we might call historical-critical readings of biblical and patristic texts, but it does challenge the import of such readings.
