This article examines Karl Barth's doctrine of the Trinity and some other Protestant doctrines after him. It credits Barth with placing the revelation of the Trinity at the foundation of his dogmatics and with insisting that God's attributes (in his unity) be thought through only in relation to prior Trinitarian and soteriological reflection. It also analyzes the thoughts and works of Jürgen Moltmann, Wolfhart Pannenberg, and Eberhard Jüngel.
