QuotationFor the first time I really saw into something of the import of the Mystery of the Holy Trinity in lines from the4th C.[hapter] of the Prologue of the Oxoniense, on the end of theology. How is the knowledge of the Trinity practical, i.e. how does it serve to further our love, our union by love with God?
