God: One and Three

This course studies how the Christian understanding of God as Trinity emerges from the Christology of the New Testament. It studies the subsequent development in the patristic era, most notably in the texts of the early councils of the Church. The Trinitarian theologies of some major theologians in the Western tradition, particularly Augustine and Aquinas, will be studied, and the distinct path taken by the Eastern tradition sketched. The course studies the work of contemporary theologians, whose work has contributed significantly to the renewal of Trinitarian theology. A study of the theology of the Holy Spirit will be an important part of this course.
