This book recounts the remarkable history of efforts by significant medieval thinkers to accommodate the ontology of the Trinity within the framework of Aristotelian logic and ontology. The history of efforts by medieval thinkers to accommodate the ontology of the Trinity within the framework of Greek logic and ontology is a remarkable one.

These efforts were remarkable because they pushed creatively beyond the boundaries of existing thought while being subject to three often-conflicting types of constraint.

It investigates the trinitarian theories of ten major authors: Augustine, Boethius, Abelard, Gilbert of Poitiers, Peter Lombard, Bonaventure, Albert the Great, Aquinas, Duns Scotus and : Caterina Tarlazzi. The Trinity, Practically Speaking is an engaging introduction to the Christian doctrine of the Trinity.

The author takes us on a train ride, bridging the gaps of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as one circle of love that works together for our salvation/5(8). Roughly, the problem of the Trinity is the problem of how God can be one and yet be the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, which are three, not one.

That one thing is identical with three distinct things seems to violate traditional laws of by: 6. On the Trinity (Book XII) Commencing with a distinction between wisdom and knowledge, points out a kind of trinity, of a peculiar sort, in that which is properly called knowledge, and which is the lower of the two; and this trinity, although it certainly pertains to the inner man, is.

The doctrine of the Holy Trinity requires the joint truth of the statements that there is a unique and simple God, and that there are three distinct Persons each of which is God. Saint Augustine posed the question what entities would have to exist, and how would they have to be related, in order for this doctrine to be internally : Paul Thom.

The persons of the Trinity are defined by their relationships: The Father generates the Son, and the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son. Now it can be understood logically why this is. Reading a book on logic might not sound like the most romantic read for such an occasion, but under other circumstances others might enjoy this book more.
