With the 2010 Trinity Blogging Summit fast approaching I find myself stumped as to what I want to write. I’ve already received Peter Leithart‘s paper and it’s brilliant as expected; Brian LePort is putting the finishing touches on his and from the first draft I already know that it’s great; but I have no clue what to write about. I thought about Origen’s Trinitarianism but then I saw a post from Michael Barber on the subject and I didn’t want to appear to be biting. I also thought about a critique of social Trinitarianism along the lines that Sarah Coakley has done with regard to the Cappadocians but there’s a lot of primary and secondary literature to work through and I’m afraid I won’t have enough time. The same problem arises when thinking about writing about the Cappadocian conception of personhood (which isn’t uniform btw). I also thought about critiquing Swinburne’s social model (or maybe even Zizioulas’) but that’s been done before. Right now I’ve been reading some Cyril of Alexandria who is known mostly for his anti-Nestorian stuff but he had plenty to say about the Trinity as well. Unfortunately for me I’m not confident enough in my handling of the subject matter to write something substantial on it just yet. I’ve been praying for clarity on the issue but it seems that the heavens are brass right now. Whatever I come up with I just hope it’s more than an updated version of the bibliography I did last year (and at the very least I’ll be able to provide that). Suggestions would be welcome. If there’s anything you’d like to see me tackle then leave a comment and let me know. It might be just the answer from God I’ve been looking for!
