The Trinitarian Theology of St. Thomas Aquinas

The Trinitarian Theology of St. Thomas Aquinas

This eight-week seminar will investigate some key elements of the Trinitarian theology of St. Thomas Aquinas. We will explore the mystery of the Trinity through several fundamental texts of the scholastic tradition.

This course is a penetrating insight into Thomas's Trinitarian Treatise in the Summa Theologiae. While chapter one is concerned with human beings who are made to the image of God on account of their possession of the faculties of intellect and will, chapter two concerns itself with the Trinitarian God to Whose image we are made. It examines what it means to ascribe the capacity for knowing and loving to the triune God.
