The Trinity is the foundation of Christian faith, the lifeblood of its liturgy. In this remarkable course, you will come to understand the Trinitarian theology and history as never before. Your professor is Fr. David Vincent Meconi, SJ (DPhil, the University of Oxford), an expert on early Church history and an award-winning theology professor at Saint Louis University.

The idea of one God as three persons cannot be understood through human reason alone. Indeed, the doctrine of the Trinity was not something that early Christians fully grasped. Since then, the ecumenical councils and Christianity’s great theologians have developed an understanding of this great mystery, giving us the necessary language to discuss it.

The Trinity 101 encapsulates two millennia of Trinitarian theology in 12 brilliant lectures. Thorough yet accessible, Meconi’s course covers the fascinating history of Trinitarian doctrine, from the first disciples to the pews of modern churches. Along the way, you’ll explore how the Trinity manifests itself in sacred scripture, the Mass, and catechism.

The doctrine of God’s triune existence has always been the foundation of Christian belief. After rooting yourself in the scriptural origins of the Trinity, you’ll explore how the first Christians unfolded the teaching Jesus left to His disciples. Moving through the history of the Trinity, you will come to see its mystery not as an abstract doctrine, but rather as the manifestation of Christian discipleship.

Praise for Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J., D.Phil.

“The brilliant Augustine scholar Fr. David Meconi is well-known for his boundless energy in teaching, preaching, and writing… His personal love for the Trinity shines forth in his scholarship, and now it is available through Now You Know Media. Everyone who can’t take his courses at Saint Louis University needs this lecture series.” – Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary
“Fr. Meconi, SJ, gives witness to a rare and refreshing combination of scholarly insight and priestly compassion. An accomplished scholar and professor of theology, he reflects a life committed to the care of souls and the building of the body of Christ.” – Christopher Thompson, Ph.D., The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity
“Fr. David Meconi, S.J., is a priest with the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor, equally comfortable with plumbing the depths of Augustinian theology with students as he is with conveying the riches of Catholic spirituality to popular audiences.” – Carl E. Olson, best-selling author and Editor of Catholic World Report
“[Fr. Meconi’s] love of the topic gets translated into a passion to communicate the beauty of the truth of our Faith. I suspect that the listener will catch his passion for truth and grow spiritually as it instructs the interior of the soul.” – Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.
