Dionysius is the journal of the Department of Classics, Dalhousie University, and reflects the established character of its work. It publishes articles on the history of ancient philosophy and theology, including Patristic theology, and their nachleben. It has an especial interest in the Aristotelian and Neoplatonic traditions. Dionysius considers philosophy's relation, both negative and positive, to Christian belief in both ancient and modern times. As well as philosophical articles, Dionysius will publish articles on Classical and later literature and history, and on Hellenic, Christian, Jewish and Islamic religion, especially when they have a connection to philosophical questions.
While Dionysius does not regularly review books, it will publish Review Articles on books within its area of especial interest and will accept books sent to it for such treatment.
Dionysius is now published in a new series, beginning with Volume XVI in December 1998.
