The Person

Show Summary Details


St Thomas conceives the divine person as a subsisting relation. Relation distinguishes and identifies the person which it ‘constitutes’. His notion of person has been much studied, in connection with Trinitarian theology, Christology and anthropology. Instead of going into all of the aspects of his notion of ‘person’, this chapter mainly throws light on this conception of the person as relational.
