This article offers a brief introduction to the remarkable resurgence of trinitarian theology during the past century. It shows how the doctrine of the Trinity gradually became marginalized over many centuries. Next, some specific motifs and orientations in the contemporary trinitarian reflection are mentioned; special attention is given in this connection to three significant developments that point to key interests in the contemporary trinitarian renaissance: the rise to prominence of 'communion theology,' the desire the pursue the practical implications of the doctrine of the Trinity, and the contextualization of trinitarian reflection in different cultures. Finally, with an appeal to the contributions of LaCugna, Moltmann, and Pannenberg, it is argued that at the heart of the ongoing debate stands the question of the relationship between the economic and the immanent Trinity.
