This study aims to investigate the relationship between gender, gender-specific language about God, social roles and their influence upon empirical-theological models of the Trinity. It is the third study emerging from a survey of theology students in the UK conducted in 2003-2005 (N = 244). The findings suggest that there is an attitudinal different between men and women, with men preferring masculine images and women feminine images, which also tend to be associated with specific social roles and models of the Trinity. In particular, feminine imagery for God and a positive attitude towards the ordination of women are statistically significant predictors of a positive attitude towards the Transgender model of the Trinity.
