Dionysius the Areopagite (Greek Template:Lang) was a judge of the Areopagus who, as related in the Acts of the Apostles, (Template:Bibleverse), was converted to Christianity by the preaching of the Apostle Paul during the Areopagus sermon. According to Dionysius of Corinth, quoted by Eusebius, this Dionysius then became the first Bishop of Athens.
