Trinitarian theology is a systematic theology position that defines the Trinity of the Godhead as a foundational doctrine that permeates all areas of Christian theology as opposed to one point of doctrine in systematics. Although trinitarian theology has been present throughout the history of the church and was represented by the Cappadocian Fathers, it has experienced a renaissance starting in the 20th century.
