This module engages in depth with the historical development and the contemporary revival of theological interest in Trinitarian theology. The doctrinal development in the 4th Century and it’s reinterpretation within the late 20th Century re-appropriation of Trinitarian thought is examined by engaging with several key figures.
The focus of the module is the influence and application of Trinitarian theology on the nature and dynamics of Christian community. The class will reflect on how faith in the Triune God enriches our understanding of such human experiences as participatory relationships, equality and inclusion, and self and otherness.
To help with this focus one or two contemporary theologians will be examined, from such representative figures as:
- T. F. Torrance
- Miroslav Volf
- John Zizioulas
