    It’s an interesting depiction in that the Trinitarian figures are in a linear up/down line–as opposed to Rublev’s circular Trinity angel figures. Also the Holy Spirit is over God the Father which contradicts the Creed of Constantinople wherein The Spirit proceeds from the Father.

    It also is very classical Medieval piety in that Jesus is still being Crucified–even in heaven. Danger there is that it reduces his life to his death–big problem in evangelical Prot spirituality.Report

    I notice that one of the two arches behind the Trinity is a rainbow, or at least looks like one. However, it appears to be solid. I’m not much of an art scholar…Is it common for depictions of the Trinity to incorporate a rainbow?Report
