The Structure of Thomas' Treatise on the Triune God

Show Summary Details


The meaning of the Trinitarian doctrine of the Summa Theologiae is closely related to its structure. The structure is important because it contains a miniature depiction of the basic ideas guiding Thomas' unfolding of the doctrine. This chapter looks at how the principle aspects of Trinitarian faith are integrated within Thomas' treatise. Specifically, it discusses the accounts of the mystery of the Trinity and the plan of the Trinitarian treatise in the Summa Theologiae.
