The battle for gender equality in the last 50 years has seen the deployment of a range of concepts, such as persons and relations, identity and difference, equality and diversity.
But these concepts also lie at the very core of the doctrine of the Trinity. I argue the connection is far from accidental.
Is there a transcending source or ultimate configuration of reality in which the hope for peaceable relations for women and men, expressed by the use of these concepts finds its ultimate fulfilment? I argue there is: the Trinity is the fulfilment of that hope.
