The Trinity is the dogma that the one divine substance of God exists eternally as three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. One God, three persons. Pretty simple right?

Actually, it’s a mystery – and one of the greatest and most important mysteries of the faith, since it has to do with the very inner life of God.

Artists over the centuries have tried to depict, however imperfectly, this mysterious truth of divine revelation. Here are 13 examples. The title for each piece gives the artist and year.

Enjoy!
