(p.147) 7 Trinity and Ontology
The Theological Epistemology of Augustine's De Trinitate

Luigi Gioia

Oxford University Press

A comparison is made between the understanding of God's inner‐Trinitarian life presupposed by Christology, soteriology, doctrine of revelation and of the Holy Spirit and the polemical anti‐‘Arian’ approach to the same topic expounded in books 5 to 7. The abstract, ontological bent to the doctrine of the Trinity usually ascribed to Augustine, is thus confuted and a proposal is put forward for a more adequate description of the understanding of the unity and the consubstantiality of the Trinity presupposed by Augustine's Christology and pneumatology.

Keywords:   Christology, soteriology, revelation, Holy Spirit, Arian, ontological, unity, consubstantiality, pneumatology
