How does Augustine retrieve and build upon the Trinitarian theology that came before him? How does Augustine’s understanding of the Trinity set the trajectory in the west for all theologians who come after him? How do we articulate the Trinity without compromising the one essence? How do we understand the three persons in relation to one another?

In this new episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Matthew Levering to discuss Augustine’s understanding of the Trinity, and his importance to trinitarian theology today.

Matthew Levering (PhD, Boston College) holds the James N. and Mary D. Perry, Jr. Chair of Theology at Mundelein Seminary. He is the author or coauthor of over twenty books including The Theology of Augustine: An Introductory Guide to His Most Important Works, Did Jesus Rise from the Dead? Historical and Theological Reflections, Scripture and Metaphysics,Participatory Biblical Exegesis, and Engaging the Doctrine of Revelation.
