In this rich work Franz Dünzl, Professor of Early Church History and Patristics at the University of
Würzburg, gives an illuminating description of the theological, ecclesial and political developments
that resulted in the formulation of the doctrine of the Trinity at the Council of Constantinople in 381.
The book is elegantly written, offers a clear picture of the overall development of the discussions and at
the same time does full justice to the intricate details of this ‘impenetrable theological jungle’ (p. 133).
