Summary

This comprehensive study of the Expositiones of Johannes Scotus Eriugena, his commentary on the Pseudo-Dionysian Celestial Hierarchy, focuses on its literary form, on the practices of translation and paraphrase, as well as on the philosophical theology. Translations of major sections of the Expositiones are appended, as well as Eriugena's prologue to his earlier translation of the Dionysian corpus.
