(p.xiii) Introduction
Leibniz on the Trinity and the Incarnation

Maria Rosa Antognazza

Yale University Press

In seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Europe, the dissemination of Socinian theology sparked acrimonious debates regarding the Trinity and the Incarnation. These Trinitarian debates, despite their theological origin, were interwoven with many philosophical problems, including the relationship between reason and revelation, knowledge and faith, the principle of noncontradiction, and the theory of relations. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz participated directly in these disputes, his numerous writings on the Trinity and the Incarnation constituting a paradigmatic case of the reciprocal association between theology and philosophy during the period. This book explores the link between philosophy and revealed theology in Leibniz's thought, focusing on his two works, Theodicy and Monadology.
