Abstract and Keywords

This article presents commentaries on Trinitarian pneumatology. It explains that scriptural teachings about the Holy Spirit suggest that a Trinitarian theology of the Spirit faces two primary tasks: an account of the Spirit's mysterious personal being, and of his immediate personal action. It emphasizes that a Trinitarian pneumatology treats primarily the identity of the Holy Spirit and the Spirit's distinctive work in creation and redemption. It discusses the relevant views of Thomas Aquinas who found the identity of the Spirit in his relation of origin to the Father and Son, and John Duns Scotus who found the Spirit's identity in his unique way of originating from the Father.

Keywords: Trinitarian pneumatology, Holy Spirit, Trinitarian theology, personal being, redemption, Thomas Aquinas, John Duns Scotus
