Abstract

In this paper I argue that Edwards's strategies for individuating the persons of the Godhead are problematic in several respects. Edwards also has an idiosyncratic (but not unorthodox) distinction between 'real' and 'merely modal' distinctions in the Godhead. However, the most serious difficulty his doctrine of the Trinity fails to overcome concerns the relationship between the Triune persons and the doctrine of divine simplicity, both of which Edwards appears to endorse.
