Saint Dionysius the Areopagite - Byzantine Icon
Iconographer: Ioakeim Father
Commemorates on: October 3
This Saint was from Athens, a learned man, and a member of the famous judicial court of Mars Hill (in Greek Aeros Pagos), hence the name Areopagite. When Saint Paul preached in Athens, he was one of the first them to believe in Christ, and, according to some, became the first bishop of that city. Others say -- and this may be more probable--that he was the second Bishop of Athens, after Saint Hierotheus, whom Dionysius calls his friend and teacher "after Paul".With Saint Hierotheus he was also present at the Dormition of the most holy Theotokos; the Doxasticon of the Aposticha for the service of the Dormition is partly taken from a passage in Chapter III of On the Divine Names. According to ancient tradition, he received a martyrs end (according to some, in Athens itself) about the year 96.
