The Long Road to Homoousios

Today we begin what will be a very long series dealing with the Trinitarian Doctrine of the Church from its earliest days, up through the end of the fourth Century. Hang on.

You can find the introduction to the series, episode 34, here.

Not a lot of material for today, but I hope you enjoy the podcast!

From St. Gregory the Theologian, On Baptism.

When I say God, I mean Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. No sooner do I conceive of the One than I am illumined by the Splendor of the Three; no sooner do I distinguish Them than I am carried back to the One. When I think of any One of the Three I think of Him as the Whole, and my eyes are filled, and the greater part of what I am thinking of escapes me. I cannot grasp the greatness of That One so as to attribute a greater greatness to the Rest. When I contemplate the Three together, I see but one torch, and cannot divide or measure out the Undivided Light.
