This introductory article discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the history of Trinitarian theology. This volume is divided into seven sections that cover general topics, including the Trinity in Scripture, patristic witnesses to the Trinitarian faith and medieval appropriations of the Trinitarian faith. It provides a valuable ecumenical overview of the key theological and philosophical discussions relating to the Trinity and reflects on the practical import of Trinitarian theology in the liturgy, art, and politics. It also charts the development of theological doctrine from the New Testament writings through the patristic medieval, Reformation, modern, and contemporary periods of Trinitarian reflection.
