HUBERT R, Andrés. Influencia del Pseudo Dionisio en Nicolás de Cusa. Teol. vida [online]. 2007, vol.48, n.4, pp.425-438. ISSN 0049-3449. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0049-34492007000300006.
The reflections of Nicolas of Cusa (1401-1464) recognise the influence of Pseudo Dyonisius, particularly in his negative theology. The present study shows this influence on Nicolas' most important book: the De Docta Ignorantia (the Learned Ignorance). The book is divided into three parts and it is in the first part that Nicolas directly pursues the ideas of Pseudo Dyonisius and it is only here that he quotes them. In the other parts of the book although the influence is noted, the foundations have been set and are solid and the author or builder can construct with freedom. To prove this thesis, 2 examples are presented: the theme of darkness and the coincidence of opposites. This exercise shows how and why Pseudo Dyonisius has been accepted into the history of the theology. It also deepens the meaning of the Nicolas of Cusa's theology
