This article examines the relationship between the Trinity and creation, which belongs to the broader dogmatic framework of God's interaction with the world. It outlines some traditional and contemporary views of the human being as an image of God and discusses the analogical relationships between the triune God and creation. It explores the problem of avoiding anthropomorphism and examines contemporary theologies that seek to affirm ontological links between the Trinity and created realities.

Keywords: Trinity; creation; God; human being; anthropomorphism; contemporary theologies
