The book elucidates Henry of Ghent’s philosophical and theological system with special reference to his Trinitarian writings. It demonstrates the fundamental role of the Trinity in Henry’s philosophy and theology. It also shows how Henry (d. 1293), the most influential theologian of his day in Paris, developed the Augustinian tradition in seminal ways in response to the development of the Aristotelian tradition, especially through Thomas Aquinas (d. 1274).
