In The Cambridge Companion to Abelard. Cambridge Univ Pr (2004)
This article provides a sympathetic treatment of Abelard’s account of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. It argues that the key to Abelard’s account lies in his ingenious defense of a form of numerical sameness without identity--a relation whose application to the Trinity he justifies on the grounds that it must be invoked to explain familiar cases of material constitution. The conclusion is that, although Abelard’s discussion provides the resources to establish the coherence of the Trinity, his attempt to reconcile it with the classical doctrine of divine simplicity, though going considerable distance toward this goal, remains incomplete.
