Tudo proclama a Trindade
: esboço de uma ontologia trinitária em São Boaventura

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The theological elaboration of the trinitarian dogma implied, in the fourth century, a new articulation of the ontological categories of «substance» and «relation» in God. The conception of a metaphysics of the world and the person thought from the Trinity remains, however, a task to be accomplished. Klaus Hemmerle presented in 1976 the programmatic lines of this new «trinitarian ontology».In this dissertation the conference XI of Bonaventure’s Collationes in Hexaëmeron(1273), in which the world is explored as a «mirror» of the Trinity, is analysed. The goal is to verify if Bonaventure’s text implies an understanding of being from the trinitarian mystery,which converges with the contemporary quest for a trinitarian ontology.
