The Revelation of the Trinity

Show Summary Details


Trinitarian faith rests on receiving God's revelation within salvation history. This means that we have to consider what the revelatory action of the Trinity is, before we can begin a theological reflection on the Trinitarian mystery. In making this first step with St Thomas, we will have already entered upon an important theological reflection about our knowledge of the Trinity. This chapter begins with a discussion of St Thomas' views on revelation, creation, and salvation. It then discusses the revelation of the Trinity through its works.
