This article explores the Byzantine theologies of the Trinity from the ninth through the fifteenth centuries. It discusses liturgical hymnody and art and analyzes the controversy over the Filioque with particular attention to the ninth-century Patriarch of Constantinople Photius. It also considers the Trinity doctrine of Patriarch Gennadios II and Gregory Palamas, whose approach was similar to that of Augustine except with regards to the Filioque and the divine energies.
