Dionysius defines hierarchy as "a sacred order, a state of understanding and an activity approximating as closely as possible to the divine."(55) "Hierarchy causes its members to be images of God in all respects, to be clear and spotless mirrors reflecting the glow of primordial light and indeed of God himself."(56) Jesus is the thearchic intelligence who surpasses every essence and the thearchic source, perfection, and being underlying all hierarchy and all sanctification.
