The Mystery of God: An Inquiry on Holy Trinity. The capital aspect of the Christian creed, which summarizes and enlightens the whole faith is the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. Indeed, we discover there the everlasting source of the design of salvation, the deep meaning of the Incarnation of the Word, and the final horizon of the History of Mankind. Our course intends to explain the Trinitarian problem in Asian context today, to analyze the biblical and historical data about the Holy Trinity with clarity and precision, and to summarize briefly the meaning of the Catholic teaching on the Holy Trinity.
