Abstract: This research dwells on a comparative analysis of the various forms of Eastern and Western Christian mysticism. It focuses mainly on the influence of Saint Dionysus the Areopagite’s mystical theology on the Renaissance cardinal Nicolaus Cusanus’ theologicalphilosophical thought. This influence was first and foremost of Neo-platonic origin and itconstituted an answer to the intemperance of the logical-dogmatic thought of medieval theology, the plenary expression of a type of Neo-Aristotelianism that often proved to be an incomplete knowledge pattern.
