This chapter offers an unpublished Trinity Sunday 1988 college Evensong sermon taking off from the Petrine sermon in the Evensong readings for that day, about ‘the revelation of Jesus Christ’ and ‘the Holy Spirit sent from heaven’. The chapter's core is on the nine Trinitarian affirmations in which Newman sums up the so-called Athanasian Creed, which he regarded as Christianity's most simple, sublime, and devotional formulary. The chapter concludes with a reflection on the nature and practical significance of doctrinal propositions such as these.
