This book gathers together the proceedings of the conference Trinity and Salvation: Theological, Spiritual and Aesthetic Perspectives held at the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy, Dublin, in February 2008. The last few decades have seen a significant revival in Trinitarian theology. From being perceived as an esoteric and speculative doctrine, the Trinity is increasingly seen as a resource from which a variety of theological and spiritual themes can usefully be explored. As Karl Rahner remarked, if the Trinity is a mystery of salvation, it cannot be disconnected from Christian spirituality and faith. In this book the theology of the Trinity is discussed from contemplative, aesthetic and inter-religious perspectives. Such approaches are shown to be rooted in the Patristic and medieval tradition and continue to be prominent as Trinitarian theology becomes more inter-disciplinary in method. Thus the book explores the interface between the Trinity and mysticism, visual art, music, anthropology, ecclesiology and inter-religious dialogue. It offers fresh perspectives on a perennial theological theme in a way that makes the Trinity more credible for today.
