Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the thoughts of Immanuel Kant, G. W. F. Hegel and Friedrich Schelling about the Trinity. It describes how Kant marginalized Trinitarian doctrine and how Hegel and Schelling made use of triadic dynamisms. It explains that Hegel rejected a tri-personal divinity in favour of a self-realizing triadic dynamic symbolized by the doctrine of the Trinity while Schelling argued for divine tri-personal agency that is brought to completion in history.

Keywords: Trinity, Immanuel Kant, G. W. F. Hegel, Friedrich Schelling, triadic dynamisms, tri-personal divinity, tri-personal agency
