Abstract and Keywords
This article focuses on Trinitarian theology during the period from the late eighth century to the beginning of the twelfth century. It considers the works of Alcuin of York, Anselm of Canterbury, Gottschalk of Orbais, and John Scotus Eriugena. It explains that Alcuin's work on the undivided Trinity defended the Augustinian emphasis on the divine unity, whereas Eriugena drew on Greek Orthodox theology to emphasize the proper mode of action of the divine persons. Anselm relied upon the Augustinian image and defended the Filioque against Greek theologians.
