A historical and systematic introduction to what the medieval philospher and theologian Thomas Aquinas (1225-74) said about faith in the Trinity. Gilles Emery OP provides an explanation of the main questions in Thomas's treatise on the Trinity in his major work, the Summa Theologiae. Hispresentation clarifies the key ideas through which Thomas accounts for the nature of Trinitarian monotheism. Emery focuses on the personal relations of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, both in their eternal communion and in their creative and saving action. By highlighting the thought of one ofthe greatest defenders of the doctrine of the Trinity, he enables people to grasp the classical Christian understanding of God.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "Not only does it constitute a remarkable introduction to the central intuitions of the trinitarian synthesis of the Summa theologiae, but also, in dialogue with contemporary trinitarian issues, leads the reader to a refined intelligence of this mystery-source, atthe school of St Thomas Aquinas." --fr. Emmanuel Perrier, o.p, Revue Thomiste 13/11/2007
