Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary
the Areopagite, a convert of St. Paul, Acts 17:34 . Chrysostom declares Dionysius to have been a citizen of Athens, which is credible, because the judges of the Areopagus generally were so. After his conversion, Dionysius was made the first bishop of Athens; having laboured, and suffered much in the Gospel, he is said to have been burnt at Athens, A.D. 95. The works attributed to Dionysius are generally reputed spurious.
