Una’s Trinitarian dimension
in God’s only daughter
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Thanks to the Incarnation, Una participates in the nature of God. It is in accordance with this that she has a strongly Trinitarian aspect. Her identification with the Trinity is made most obvious through the House of Holiness, which is inhabited by three quasi-divine matrons and an overlapping, generally younger, triad. Una is also identified with the Trinity through her affiliation with the medieval figure of Sapience, as treated in the Horologia Sapientiae of Henry Suso. Una’s three animals suggest Christ as God Incarnate, reflecting the interdependence of the doctrine of the Trinity and the doctrine of the Incarnation of Christ—which are proclaimed, respectively, in the first and second of the Thirty-Nine Articles.
